So Fresh is a compilation album series produced and skewed by Sony Music Australia (formerly Sony BMG Music Entertainment between 2005 and 2008), available in only Australia. It is released every three months and is usually composed of a mixture of tracks recorded by artists signed to Sony and Universal Music Australia. The tracks are mainly the biggest Top 40 hits of the season. It replaces the series Hit Machine.

Every "So Fresh" compilation album since 2000 (apart from the Pop Party and special #1s or Top 10s versions) has gone to No. 1 on the ARIA Chart "Compilation Albums" list. Most So Fresh compilations sell well over 140,000 copies (Double Platinum in Australia). So Fresh: The Hits of Summer 2007 sold over 350,000 copies (5x Platinum in Australia).[1] They are the most successful compilation albums in Australian music history.


A So Fresh album is released every 3 months (season) and comprises that season's top hits. They are named after the season in which they were released. At the end of each year, a two-disc collection is released, with all the greatest hits of the current year (for example: "The Hits of Summer (current year) plus the Best of (previous year)").

So Fresh TV[edit]

The Nine Network broadcast So Fresh TV from 2002 to 2006, which was filmed in the Sydney CBD. The hosts of the show were Jules Lund (2002-2003), David Campbell (2004-2006) and Elysia Platt (2002-2006), who would sometimes interview various artists. The show mainly played music videos of songs released recently. The series was cancelled in late 2006, in the face of strong competition from Network Ten's Video Hits and was renamed The Music Jungle.
