Live in the triple j studios, Flume told Veronica and Lewis:

This is kind of surreal right now… I think it’s going to be kind of a big night tonight. I’m incredibly grateful, it’s been a huge year. I honestly couldn’t be happier. Thank you everyone who voted, thank you everyone in this room right now – this is crazy. Everyone at my house, please don’t break anything. I need to call Kai! I should do that straight after this!
