Today is the day to be out and proud about your favourite Australian music artists, while also helping the music industry charity Support Act deliver crisis relief services to musicians, managers, crew and music workers who are unable to work due to ill health or injury.

It’s been a very tough time in recent years for the music industry, particularly due to COVID, so this annual day of Australian music celebration is extra-important this time round.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
