The countdown is on!

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 19th January 2022

Pull out your headphones and listen up! The votes are in. The tension is high. The Hottest 100 is back to have that one friend who only listens to T Swizzle asking ‘who’s this’ all day long.

This Saturday 22 January from midday AEDT (that’s 11am for us Queenslanders), Triple J is counting down the biggest tunes of 2021, as voted by you. Will Olivia Rodrigo make her debut in the top ten? Will The Wiggles take the crown? There’s only one way to find out at the best venues to listen to the Hottest 100 in Brisbane.

The Brightside | Fortitude Valley

Pull up this open-air car park party to celebrate the best tunes of 2021! Whether you’re kicking back in the beer garden or grooving with your crew, there will be plenty of quality sips on hand to quench your thirst alongside good vibes all round. Grab your ticket here.

X CARGO | Fortitude Valley

Your favourite social hub is throwing a mega backyard party in true Aussie form this Hottest 100. They’ve got the goods with a barbecue, cold ones, ping pong, and free entry. You can even up the ante with their Weekend Pow Wow serving up a bites platter and drinks package for two hours! Book here.

The Princess Theatre | Woolloongabba

Listening to the Hottest 100 is arguably more of a summer tradition than backyard cricket, which is why The Princess Theatre will be streaming it all day long in their open-air Clarence Courtyard. With frozen margaritas, sizzling snags, and great tunes aplenty, it’s the formula for a perfect afternoon. More info here.

Archive Beer Boutique | West End

The theme of this Hottest 100 party is basically Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! The Archive Beer taps will be pouring out eight limited edition Australian craft beers all day (and week) long so you can sip on Aussie brews while you groove to Aussie tunes. More info here.

Revel Brewing Co. | Bulimba

Beverage aficionados will know that Hottest 100 day also marks the countdown of GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers, and Revel will be celebrating both this weekend! With Bloody Brilliant Beers’ Strawberries & Cream Sour pouring from 12-4pm and a few surprises along the way, there’s plenty to keep you busy all day long. Book here.

The Triffid | Fortitude Valley

Roll on down to the luscious surrounds of The Triffid Garden to celebrate an incredible year of great music at the place that knows what they’re talking about! Entry is free and bingo is back if you’re feeling competitive. Plus, if you dress up as something starting with J, you’ll go into the draw to win a prize. More info here.

The Prince Consort | Fortitude Valley

Gather the crew for a backyard party at this gastro pub! Listen to the countdown under the afternoon rays as you laze in the Garden Bar with a cold drink in one hand and a bite from the free barbecue in the other. Teaming up with Balter Brewing and with free entry all day long, there’s also games and giveaways for you to try your luck. Book here.
