The 50 Most Played Artists on Unearthed in 2016

It’s a pretty exciting time to be a fan of independent Australian music. 2016 has been a year of immense discovery; we’ve been so lucky to hear incredible songs from independent artists all around Australia, and to share them with you on Unearthed Digital Radio.

This year, we played more than 2200 artists on Unearthed Digital Radio, and we played a combined 3786 different songs. It’s been so wonderful to get to get a taste of what the future might sound like – in short, incredibly diverse, and undeniably Australian. We’ve met teenagers with huge futures, producers who take impossible, imaginary sounds and make them real, bands who can’t not go full-throttle, lyricists whose words you wanna tattoo up your sleeves, and rappers so woke we’re not sure they ever sleep. There’s so much more. It’s been the best.

So who’d we play the most on Unearthed Digital Radio this year? Thought you’d never ask. Hear the playlist here, and get the list below.
