The 'Chillest 100' is BACK for 2021 to help you ring in the New Year. We will count down the 'Chillest' tracks as voted by you throughout New Year's Day on the first of January, 2021.

What is the Chillest 100?

The Chillest 100 is the Coolest Countdown of music for the year - a celebration of a diverse array of smooth sounds and artists from around the globe.

Like it's host network SBS Chill, the Chillest 100 crosses musical genres from Downtempo, Electronic, lofi and particularly World music tracks that span from bygone decades to current hits. The only criteria is that it's all 'Chill'.

When is the Chillest 100?

SBS Chill will countdown the Chillest 100 from 12noon on New Years Day.

Where can I listen to the Chillest 100?

There are a number of ways you can tune in to the Chillest 100. These include:

DAB+ Digital Radio - Chill

If you have one of these at home or in your car, search for Chill alphabetically. Digital radio doesn't use frequencies like AM and FM radio do. DAB+ digital radio is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Darwin and Canberra.

TV: Channel 39 & 306 

In 2018, SBS Chill was added to digital TV services in Australia. You can find us in the radio channel section. If you can't see SBS Chill, rescan your TV. Also, because of changes in technology, your TV has to be less than a few years old for the station to play.

SBS Radio App -  IOS / Android

One of the best ways to listen is by downloading the SBS Radio App. When in the app, click the headphones down the bottom left, click on 'live radio' and you'll see SBS Chill there.

Smart Speakers - If you have one of these speakers, like a Google Home for example, tell it to play SBS Chill.


Who won the last Chillest 100 countdown?

French band 'Air' won the last Chillest 100 in 2018 with their track 'All I Need'.
