Voting for the Triple J Hottest 100 officially closed on Monday. If you got your votes in on time, great. But if not, that’s completely fine too. We’ll all get to tune in this weekend to count down the best songs that played on Triple J in 2022. If you’re not meeting at a mate’s place this Saturday, there’s plenty of awesome venues around Melbourne throwing events for the Hottest 100 countdown. Grab your friends, sing along to your favourites and have a cheeky boogie while you’re at it. Which one will you go to?
