The Hottest 100 weekend is ready to go
Not only are triple j gearing up for a massive day on Sunday with their annual Hottest 100, but they have turned it into a 3 day party.
From 10am today they will replay the Hottest 100 from last year, then from 12pm AEDT Sunday they kick off the 2013 countdown. On Monday, triple j will then play the songs that just missed out on making it into the 100.
triple j are again asking their listeners to register their party and will provide a map so everyone can find a venue to enjoy the countdown (see below).
They are also making great use of numerous social media channels to keep listeners up to date so they don't miss a thing. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Rdio, Spotify, Deezer and of course the triple j website are being used.
This year they received 1,492,619 votes by 173,658 fans in 169 countries.
