“We are so excited to join forces with Support Act and Isol-Aid,” commented Kirsty Rivers of Australia Council, who’ve partnered with the livestream festival for this edition.
“We know Australians love music, and live performance will be critical as we seek to bring life back to our cities, regions and economy but we can’t do this without supporting our artists and industry to get back on track when times are tough. We’d encourage music lovers across Australia to don a band t-shirt and show their support this Ausmusic T-Shirt Day.”
Next week’s Ausmusic T-Shirt Day marks the second time the initiative has been held this year, after an ad-hoc version in April amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The annual celebration of Australian music, which sees music lovers don merch by their favourite homegrown acts, will also fundraise for Support Act – in a year when the organisation has provided assistance and crisis relief to music industry workers affected by the pandemic and restrictions on mass gatherings.
