TRIPLE J's HOTTEST 100 Songs of the Year streaming LIVE from Australia. Doors open & live stream starts at 5pm.
Bushfires Fundraiser Info: Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades, with large swaths of the country devastated since the fire season began in late July. At the event, we'll have a giant Aussie-themed photo booth accessible to those who donate directly online to an Australian bushfires/wildlife relief fund. Make an online donation directly to a relief fund of your choice – then grab an Aussie-themed prop (or put on an Aussie flag unitard) and print free photo strips. Share your Aussie-themed photos with friends and encourage others to donate online to relief funds: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/06/world/australia/help-australia-fires.html
Plus compete for your country in Aussie-themed Beer/Wine/Spirit Olympics tournament games (ie: 'Down Under' Beer Pong). Try a Tim Tam Slam, eat some Fairy bread, participate in the 'Hey Hey It's Saturday' Drinking Challenge, sip on 'Kath & Kim' Shots and Australian beers - all while listening to TRIPLE J's HOTTEST 100 (streaming LIVE). Compete in the Best Dressed Aussie Bogan Contest, build the tallest Didgeridoo (aka: Wizard Staff) out of beer cans, eat some Snags or some Vegemite on Toast, and find some Sheilas. Fair dinkum, mate.
