The campaign launch video features a number of famous faces rocking Ausmusic merch, such as Montaigne (wearing Mia Wray), KYE (wearing Telenova), Alex Dyson (wearing Jack River), The Temper Trap’s Dougy Mandagi (wearing Genesis Owusu), Tom Cardy (wearing King Gizzard) and plenty more.

Supported by ARIA and celebrated across triple j, Double J and the ABC as part of Ausmusic Month, Ausmusic T-Shirt Day pairs 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.

Support Act hopes to raise over $750,000 from this year’s Ausmusic T-Shirt Day. For more information on how it works, how to get involved, or on the range of premium t-shirts on offer, visit the official site.
