Since 2008, Bandcamp has provided up-and-coming artists with a space to upload and sell their music and merchandise, while retaining control of how it is sold and at what price. Over the years they have made a name for themselves by truly caring about and helping the artists that use the platform. This was taken to the next level in March 2020 as they introduced Bandcamp Fridays. On the first Friday of every month, Bandcamp now waives their revenue share to help artists whose livelihoods have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Bandcamp is an online record store and music community where passionate fans discover, connect with, and directly support the artists they love.”Bandcamp
The next Bandcamp Friday is September 2nd and continues through the rest of the year [October 7th, November 4th, and December 2nd].
After processor fees, an average of 93% of consumers’ money ends up going to the artist/label compared to the 82% on a normal day. As they say “Every day is a good day to support artists on Bandcamp!” Discover your new favorite artist and show your support this Friday on Bandcamp.
