Feature Triple J Hottest 100 Contenders or Australian Artists

Register your details with us to flavour your scheduled music with either Triple J Hottest 100 contenders or music from the best Australian Artists automatically from the 23rd til the 26th of January, after which it will be removed from programming automatically.

To keep your usual venue atmosphere alive, we’ll weave in one song from your chosen option every 10 minutes.


The registration form will close on January 21st.
