  • Updated 23rd January 2017 – 45,519 votes counted.

What is this?

This page is dedicated to providing an ongoing (up-to-date style) prediction of the Triple J’s Hottest 100 for the 2016 Countdown (to take place on Triple J on 26th January 2017.

Who am I?

My profession is that of a bean counter. I have been with Confidential Tax & Business Services for over 17 years (www.ctbs.net.au; tim@ctbs.net.au). A part owner/ director for more than half of that time. I have always had a fascination with statistics. I love UFC, Triple J, Music festivals, Squash, NBA basketball and life generally.

Please see below the updated predictions (the top 200). At this stage 1 & 2 should be very close. At this stage we believe Tash Sultana – Jungle has a lock on the third spot. The gap in front and behind is over 100 votes. the sample size so far is around 2.8% of the predicted end point. *lav = like a version. Childish Gambino’s Redbone has a huge amount of momentum and is predicted to be 4th.
