It’s time to don your favourite band t-shirt and crank up the volume for Ausmusic T-Shirt Day. This annual celebration of Australian music is more than just a day to show off your impeccable taste in music; it’s an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for Support Act, the heart and soul of our music industry’s charity.
Why Take Part
Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is a significant event in the Australian music calendar. By participating, you’re not just celebrating local music; you’re directly supporting the people who create the soundtrack to our lives. From the guitar techs and roadies to the artists themselves, every person in the music industry benefits from your support.
How to Take Part
Participating in Aus Music T-Shirt Day is simple and fun. Here’s how:
1. Choose Your Shirt: Find your favourite Australian band or artist t-shirt. Whether it’s a classic AC/DC tee or a quirky Courtney Barnett number, any Aussie act will do! If you haven’t got one, you can buy one here at the Ausmusic T-Shirt Day website.
2. Wear It with Pride: On Aus Music T-Shirt Day, wear your shirt loud and proud. Sport it at work, at home, or even in your local supermarket. The more people see it, the more awareness we can raise.
3. Share the Love: Snap a photo of yourself in your tee and share it on social media using the hashtag #AusMusicTShirtDay. Encourage your friends and family to join in the fun too!
4. Donate: Visit the official Ausmusic T-Shirt Day website to make a donation. Every dollar counts, and every donation helps Support Act continue their vital work.
Where Does The Money Go?
All funds raised through Ausmusic T-Shirt Day go directly to Support Act. This money provides short-term financial support for music workers in crisis through Crisis Relief Grants, Tax Help, and Funeral Support. It also funds mental health prevention, education and training programs, and dedicated culturally intelligent support for First Nations music workers.
So, this year, let’s band together for Aus Music T-Shirt Day. Whether you’re an avid concertgoer, a casual listener, or a die-hard fan, your support can make a world of difference to the people who bring music to our lives. It’s time to turn the volume up on Aussie music and show our artists how much we care.
