How famous fans have celebrated T-Shirt Day - past and present

Updated 9 November 2021

6 Music's T-Shirt Day takes place on Friday 19 November and, for the 14th year running, celebrates the humble band T-Shirt.


The concept is quite clear: you wear your favourite tee, then send us a photo by using the #TShirtDay hashtag and we’ll play a song by that artist.

From 7am-7pm, we will be handing over control of the airwaves to you - get involved and share a request from your chest!
