Confirmed today.

Famous charity concert Sound Relief is confirmed to be returning this year in the wake of the Australian bushfire crisis.

The concerts, which were originally held in 2009 in Sydney and Melbourne to raise money for the Victorian bushfires and Queensland floods, included performances from massive international and local acts including Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Kylie Minogue, Midnight Oil, Paul Kelly, Kings Of Leon and The Presets.

The Melbourne date, held at the MCG, previously held venue's live concert attendance record with 80,518 people in attendance.

"In response to the devastating bushfires currently sweeping across the country, the Australian Music Community will band together once again under the unified banner of Sound Relief 2020," a post issued on the original Sound Relief Twitter page today reads.

"Stay tuned for more information soon."
