Voting is now open for triple j’s Hottest 100 Like A Version.
The radio institution announced last week that it was bringing two of its iconic themes together for a mammoth countdown to celebrate 20 years of Like A Version.
With over 800 Like A Version performances coming from 650 artists, there’s certainly lots to choose from. Childish Gambino, Flume, DMA’S, Arctic Monkeys, and Haim are just some of the big-name artists who have taken part in Like A Version over the past two decades.
If you have a strong opinion on which Like A Version is the best, you can vote for your favourite now via triple j’s Hottest 100 website or via the triple j app. Voters will have the chance to win triple j’s Golden Ticket prize, a double pass to every triple j-supported festival and tour for a year.
All Like A Versions are available to watch and listen via the triple j website and triple j’s YouTube to help voters choose their favourite. It should also be noted that listeners can vote for as many as ten performances.
Voting closes on Monday, July 10th, with the countdown taking place on triple j and Double J on Saturday, July 15th at 12pm AEST.
In anticipation of the Hottest 100 countdown, several stars have shared their favourite Like A Version performances.
Flume chose Confidence Man’s cover of DJ Sammy’s “Heaven”. “Seeing the theatre they add to it, that’s really entertaining. They really went in!” the producer said of the 2022 cover.
G Flip’s favourite Like A Version was Gang of Youths’ 2017 rendition of The Middle East’s “Blood”. “I thought the band arrangement was incredible and I loved seeing Dave Le’aupepe on the white Falcon being an absolute rockstar. It was really emotional and a bloody ripper,” they said.
Tones and I‘s favourite was also a recent entry – Sly Withers 2021 cover of Coldplay’s “The Scientist”, with the “Dance Monkey” singer revealing that the Coldplay classic is “a special song to me.”
