Triple J, stylized as triple j, is a government-funded radio station in Australia, owned by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). The station broadcasts nationally and can be found on the frequency 105.7 in most areas, although the exact frequency can vary depending on the listener's location.
Triple J has a strong focus on contemporary alternative and independent music, both from Australian artists and international acts. It plays an essential role in promoting new music, particularly through its popular annual Hottest 100 countdown, which invites listeners to vote for their favorite songs of the year. This countdown has become an iconic event in Australian music culture.
One unique feature of triple j is its 'Unearthed' initiative. This is an ongoing competition aimed at discovering and promoting unsigned or independent musical talent from Australia. Many artists first gained recognition through Unearthed before going on to national or even international fame.
The station is also known for its strong commitment to Australian youth culture. It covers a wide range of topics relevant to young adults, such as social issues, mental health, and current events, in addition to its music programming.
Triple J was first established in 1975 as Double Jay (2JJ) in Sydney before expanding nationally in 1989 and rebranding to its current name. Over the years, the station has been a significant influence in the Australian music industry and a staple of Australian youth culture. Its commitment to promoting new music and addressing issues relevant to its young audience sets it apart from other radio stations.
In addition to its radio broadcasts, Triple J maintains a robust online presence. Its website offers live streaming, music news, interviews, and other content. The station also hosts a series of live music concerts and events throughout the year, including the annual One Night Stand, a free concert held in regional towns across Australia.
