The Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact all of us, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are cancelled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it.

On March 20th, 2020, Bancamp waived their revenue share in order to help artists and labels impacted by the pandemic. The Bandcamp community showed up in a massive way, spending $4.3 million on music and merch—15x the amount of a normal Friday— helping artists cover rents, mortgages, groceries, medications, and so much more. It was truly inspiring.

Bandcamp Waives Fees To Artists Again Today!

On May 1st, 2020, Bandcamp did it again and fans paid artists $7.1 million.

On June 5th, 2020, fans paid artists $4.8 million, and many artists and labels used the day to donate to organizations fighting for racial equity.

But the pandemic and its impact on the music community aren’t over, so today, July the 3rd, Bandcamp are waiving their revenue share for all sales on Bandcamp, from midnight to midnight PDT (Pacific Daylight Time).

It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, pop over to Bandcamp now and have a look at the records and merch for sale now, every little bit helps!
