Start preparing yourselves for the inevitable echoes of “shoulda been higher”, triple J has just unveiled all the important dates and details around the 2021 Hottest 100, something we can look forward to after a whirlwind year.

Well renowned as triple j’s annual poll of your favourite songs and nationwide party, the big countdown itself will be happening on Saturday 22 January 2022 as we all count down the Hottest 100 songs of 2021. While it’s always a great excuse to party with your mates all day listening to music, it’s also a chance to reflect on the year that was and thank the artists that helped us get through it.

Keep up with the latest music news via our website.

Voting for the iconic triple j’s Hottest 100 opens on Tuesday 14 December at 8am AEDT and will remain open until Monday 17 January at 12pm AEDT. So, make sure you have your say and show some love for your fave songs of the year!

Dubbed the world’s biggest music democracy, the listener voted poll has become an integral party of young Aussie’s calendars. We’ve come up with a list of songs we predict to take out triple j’s iconic Hottest 100 countdown for 2021 here.

Switching it up for 2022, triple j are getting the party started early by bringing you the Hottest 200 – or the hundred songs that just missed out – on Friday 21 January, where music lovers can tune in to triple j from 10am local time for the ultimate pre-party.

Rounding it out for a Hottest Weekend, over on Double J, listeners can relive the Hottest 100 of 2001 on Sunday 23 January, where Alex Lloyd took out the top spot with ‘Amazing’.

Listen along on your radio, online, and the triple j app. Plus, you can do a little good with your vote by donating to triple j’s charity partner Lifeline. It costs Lifeline $39 to answer a call, which is the same price as a Hottest 100 x Lifeline t-shirt. Donate or buy a tee and you might save a life.
