All the Highlights from The Fourth Day of triple j’s Requestival

As triple j’s Requestival continues, more and more unexpected cuts have been emerging from the request line, and rocking the airwaves.

As triple j’s Requestival tends towards the close of its fourth day, listeners are getting an idea of just how eclectic the request line can be.

First announced last week, the Requestival is exactly what it sounds like, with triple j allowing listeners to choose the playlist for the work week, with every track between 6am and 9pm being by request only.

Of course, this isn’t the first time listeners have been able to choose the content on triple j. Why their annual Hottest 100 is the largest public-voted music poll in the world, and previous events such as their Impossible Music Festival have seen fans choose a weekend of archival programming

Following a rather wild first few days of the event, the station has again found itself at the mercy of listeners who have been flexing their musical knowledge to dig out some real deep cuts.

For much of the morning of day four, things seemed relatively run-of-the-mill for triple j, with only Bowling for Soup’s cover of “1985” seeming to stand out amongst the playlist, though the appearance of Boney M’s “Rasputin” soon found the listener base paying attention to the disco classic.

While tracks from the Beastie Boys, Talking Heads, and Evanescence were a departure from the traditional sound of the station, Lucy Smith’s Lunch program found itself soundtracked by science-themed songs during a discussion with Dr. Karl.

In fact, the fourth day of Requestival has so far been the most comparatively “normal” to date, with only the additional appearances of Bruce Springsteen and Mariah Carey (and maybe the likes of Starland Vocal Band and Sisqo) throwing listeners out of their groove somewhat.

triple j’s Requestival runs until Sunday, May 31st, with the request line still open via the triple j app. Relive the action from day one, day two, and day three here, and check out the day three playlist below.
