Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is returning for another year, music industry charity Support Act has confirmed. This year’s edition of the annual day of celebration, advocacy, and fundraising will take place on Friday, 18th November.
Supported by ARIA and celebrated across triple j, Double J, and the ABC as part of Ausmusic Month, Ausmusic T-Shirt Day aims to pair local support of Australian artists with much-needed fundraising for Support Act. Last year, $600,000 was raised, with funds going towards crisis relief, mental health and wellbeing, the Support Act Wellbeing Helpline, and First Nations support.
