The time for marshalling your fave tracks of the year has come; voting for triple j’s annual Hottest 100 countdown is now open.

Arguing with your mates about who should make your shortlist is extremely fun, but don’t forget about that coveted Golden Ticket; it gets you and a pal into every  triple j-supported gig and festival in 2017, including Splendour, Laneway, Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo, Porter Robinson, Diplo, Vallis Alps, Illy, Asta and a whole ton more.

Watch the delightful David Attenborough-style clip in which the ecosystem of a live show is analysed by Dr Karl (featuring about a million artist cameos) below, and then head to the triple j site to cast your votes.
