triple j’s Unearthed High returns for 2023


Get your textbooks ready because triple j’s Unearthed High is back in session!

Now in its 16th year, triple j’s annual high school music competition has introduced Australians to some of their favourite acts over the years.

The Kid Laroi, Genesis Owusu, Hockey Dad and Montaigne came through as finalists and JACOTÉNE, George Alice, Teenage Joans, The Rions, Arno Faraji and Gretta Ray have all previously taken the crown.

Now the competition is back and ready to uncover the freshest talent from high schools across Australia. So, if you’re in years 7-12 and make music, listen closely.

If you’re crowned top of the class for 2023’s Unearthed High, you’ll receive triple j’s support to record, mix and master your next big hit. That might mean flying you to triple j’s studios to record your single or connecting you with a high-profile producer in your city.

Along with the general prize, the Unearthed High Indigenous Initiative gives First Nations entrants the chance to win a songwriting workshop at their school courtesy of the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.

Here’s how to enter:
