Do you love Australian music? And do you care about the people who create it? Of course you do. Well great news: #AusmusicTShirtDay is just around the corner (November 19th) and we wanna give you a leg-up so you're prepared by the time it comes around.
Run by the legends at Support Act, Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is a massive nationwide celebration of Australian music that reminds us how lucky we are to have such a strong local music scene, with many highly talented and successful artists across all genres of music.
But as we all know, this year has been a COVID-19 driven wipeout, with tours and festivals cancelled, venues closed and careers put on hold. Practically everyone working in live music - artists, artist managers, crew and music workers - have lost their jobs and their income, and the future is anything but certain.
The demand for Support Act’s crisis relief, mental health programs and Wellbeing Helpline have never been greater.
It's time for us to show support and help raise funds or all those in music who are doing it tough this year and participate in Ausmusic T-Shirt Day. You can find out more about the day and donate on the website here.
So you're extra prepared for the day, scroll down for some of our favourite Aussie bands with links to their merch stores. Stock up on some quality merch and thank us later.
