After having a brief stint away from INXS, Fortune re-joined the group in 2010 at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics show and has since then continued to front the band.

    • Loane is a French pianist from Paris and in 2008 she released her debut album, ‘Jamais Seule’. The album earned her national acknowledgment and her song ‘Danser’ was voted ‘Song Of The Year’ on French Television. Her second album, ‘Le Lendemain’ was released in 2011 and sees Loane share a duet with Lenny Kravitz. In 2010 she recorded a French adaptation of the INXS hit ‘Mystify’ with John Mayer. 
Headlining Southern Sounds alongside INXS we welcome Shihad, a band who have supported AC/DC, had three No. 1 albums and ranked 1st equal for the most top 40 charting singles in their home country of New Zealand. On the main stage we also present the most successful rock band ever from South Africa, Just Jinjer, alongside New Zealand’s I Am Giant and the South African dance duo Goldfish.
