YOU’RE ON THE AIR: Triple J will only play requests for a whole week!

Have you been itching to hear a particular song but couldn’t be arsed dragging yourself off the couch to chuck it on the stezza? Is there a tune that makes your heart sing but you can’t, for the life of you, find it on Spotify?

Well, you’re in luck because ALL NEXT WEEK, national yoof broadcaster Triple J will be opening up the phones for the very first Requestival!

Yep, that’s right! Starting Monday 25 May, the Triple J playlist, from 9am to 8pm each day will be made up entirely of requests from YOU!

That’s every peak daytime show as well as Live At The Wireless, Friday Mix and House Party so it’s not just about your favourite tunes, start thinking fave live tracks, banging remixes and even guilty pleasures.

The station is vowing to play songs that have rarely or never been featured on Triple J so start thinking outside the box, people.

“We also want you to tell us WHY you’re choosing those songs. Relive a memory, give a shout out, share a secret, tell us about the time you [redacted] to that track, or just make your case as to why the nation simply MUST hear your song,” Triple J said announcing the Requestival.

And if your story cuts the mustard it will be read on air and you might be in line for some cool merch!

Not only is this a great way to get your name on the radio, but it’s also the perfect chance to give some awesome Newy artists some national exposure (hint hint).

All you have to do is download the Triple J app and start making that Requestival list!

The Requestival kicks off at 9am on Monday 25 May.
