Bandcamp Friday Continues to Help Independent Artists

Independent music platform Bandcamp began Bandcamp Friday in March to help independent musicians impacted by the pandemic. On the first Friday of each month, the service waives all artist fees on music and merchandise sold through their site.

Since the first Bandcamp Friday in March, over $75 million in music and merchandise has been sold, money that goes directly to the artists. Overall, more than half a billion dollars has been spent on Bandcamp.

Musicians will continue to feel the effects of lost touring income for many months to come, so we’re also sharing some ideas below on how fans can support the artists they love and how artists can give fans new, creative ways to provide support. It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, and we hope you’ll join us as we work to support artists in this challenging time.
