Triple J Is Surveying Listeners About Changing The Date Of The Hottest 100

Written by Tom Williams on August 2, 2017

Triple j has launched a survey of its listeners as it continues to debate possibly changing the date of its Hottest 100 countdown.

The broadcaster, which is currently reviewing the date of its annual countdown, is asking for listeners’ opinions about the event being held on Australia Day (26th January).

“It’s not a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ survey,” triple j says. “We’ve included a mix of closed and open-ended questions to encourage your considered responses.

“We want to hear the thoughts around your opinion, as well as how you personally relate to the Hottest 100.

“Your comments will be used by triple j to help shape our decision, alongside the perspectives and learnings from other stakeholders we have spoken to.”

One of the open-ended questions in the survey is, “What do you think of triple j‘s Hottest 100 being on January 26th?”

Triple j first announced that it was reviewing the date of the Hottest 100 in September 2016, after a social media campaign called for the countdown to be moved. The station has been consulting with musicians, community leaders and Indigenous groups about the date of the Hottest 100 for the last 10 months.

The Hottest 100 survey, which takes around five to 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed here. Triple j says that while it does ask for some personal details from respondents, all answers will be anonymous.

The survey will remain open until Wednesday, 9th August, and triple j‘s final decision on the date of the Hottest 100 will be announced later this year.

The Hottest 100 of 2016 was won by Sydney producer Flume, and his song ‘Never Be Like You’.
