This Bloke Is Giving Away A Free Falls Festival Ticket To Whoever Gets Triple J To Change The Hottest 100 Date

Want to go to Falls but couldn’t nab a ticket? Well, here’s one way to find yourself soaking up one hell of a lineup.

Brendan Busch is giving away a four-day ticket to the first person who can get triple j to say, either online or on radio, that they’ll change the date for The Hottest 100 next year.

Taking it a step further, he’ll even include camping and accommodation if someone convinces the government-funded station to “apologise for not having done so for the past 16 years, and to say why January 26th is the most un-Australian Day of the year”.

If no one has been able to do that by December 25, he’ll be giving the ticket away to someone who has shared his Facebook post with an example on how to spend future January 26 celebrations in a new light, along with sharing a petition and provoking discussion of a date change over on the j’s.

“This is legit”, reads a Facebook post from Busch.

Triple j has recently has faced calls to change the date of The Hottest 100 in a petition from Bar(r)ed Subjects that currently holds over 800 signatures.

“Australia Day represents, for First Nations’ Peoples, a date commemorating the invasion of their countries and colonization of their ways of life, rather than a celebration of what it now means to be ‘Australian’,” reads the petition. “We recognize that it isn’t within the power of triple j to change this date; however, it is capable of using their broadcast to make a statement of solidarity with the experience of those whose countries were colonized.”

Falls Festival will go down in Lorne and Marion Bay from Wednesday December 28 – Saturday December 31, Bryon Bay from Saturday December 31 – Monday January 2 and Freemantle from Saturday January 7 – Sunday January 8. Email brendan.j.busch@gmail.com to let him know how you go.
