Sound Relief was a multi-venue rock music concert held on 14 March 2009, which was announced by the Premier of Victoria, John Brumby on 24 February 2009. The surprise of the evening was the involvement of HRH Princes William and Harry.

The event was organised by Michael Gudinski, Michael Chugg, Amanda Pelman, Joe Segreto & Tom Lang of IMC/Homebake Festival and Mark Pope to raise funds for those affected by the February 2009 Victorian bushfires and Queensland Floods.

 

The event was held simultaneously at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Sydney Cricket Ground.

All of the proceeds from the Melbourne Concert and half of the proceeds of the Sydney Concert went to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

The other half of the Sydney proceeds went to the Queensland Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal to help flood victims.

 A special presentation was held mid-way through the concerts, with a satellite link between the two venues. At this time, Kylie Minogue, at the Melbourne event, performed I Still Call Australia Home and Australian actress Toni Collette introducing Princes William and Harry who sent their support via satellite.

Jet and Wolfmother flew interstate to play at both concerts.

It is interesting to note that HRH Prince William and Prince Harry's speech at Sound Relief was their first to the nation and as such being Australian history in the making.
 

Footage was released on DVD on October 9. It contains partial 9-hour footage of the 16-hour concert but every artist who performed at the event is represesnted. The DVD debuted at #2 in the Australian ARIA Top 40 DVDs, has been certified 5× Platinum.
