While we were standing around, succumbing to sunstroke last weekend, Tixel was hard at work compiling its own list of the Hottest 100 Events of 2023

As the nation unveiled its verdict in the Triple J Hottest 100 showdown this past weekend, Tixel, Australia’s go-to fairy god mother of ticket resales, burned the midnight oil to curate the best of what 2023 had to offer.

The result? A stellar compilation that stands as their crowning glory—the Hottest 100 Events of 2023.

All the live events coveted by Aussies in 2023, from the hottest international pop musicians to established and emerging festival brands, sporting matches, musicals, ballet, shows from nostalgia artists, rappers, DJs, events celebrating WorldPride, and bashes in far-reaching regional towns.

Down under, a wave of Aussies were swept into the Country music zeitgeist, led by none other than American sensation Luke Combs. He claims the coveted #1 spot on the list, thanks to sold-out spectacles that resonated across every capital city in the land.

As expected, mainstream juggernauts dominated the charts. Coldplay secured the second spot, captivating a massive audience, including interstate enthusiasts, during a two-night extravaganza at Perth’s Optus Stadium.

Harry Styles, a catalyst for the international artist arena circuit, fueled considerable demand, coupled with the quirky trend of musicians embracing the “shoey” on stage since February.

The 1975 and K-Pop royalty BLACKPINK also clinched top 10 spots, while luminaries like Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Robbie Williams graced the broader top 100.
