Bandcamp Fridays are coming back on February

By News No Comments

The Bandcamp Fridays program will return on February 4 and will run until the end of May.

The initiative was introduced in March 2020 to give a fee-free option to support artists who have been affected by the pandemic.

Artists will receive 100 percent of the revenues if they waive their revenue share every Friday.

Bandcamp said, “Fans gave artists and companies more than $70 million over 17 days, helping to fund rentals, mortgages, food, prescriptions, and much more.”

“If you’re one of the approximately 800,000 admirers that participated, thank you. Live performance income will most likely take several months to fully recover. So we’ll keep doing Bandcamp Fridays in 2022, on the 4th of February, 4th of March, 1st of April, and 6th of May.” they said in their blog post.

“With such a big income source drying up almost entirely, finding solutions to continue supporting artists in the next months is now an important concern for everybody who loves about music and the artists who produce it,” its CEO, Ethan Diamond, stated in 2020.

Bandcamp Fridays are Coming Again

By News No Comments

Bandcamp Fridays is an initiative created by Bandcamp after the pandemic hit the music community to support independent artists and labels by waiving 100% of the sales without taking their share.

Since March, the fans have bought more than $75 million in this platform. Also, each Bandcamp Friday sells around $1 million in music and merchandising that goes directly to the artists and labels without any cuts.

The good news, they will continue doing their Bandcamp Fridays until the end of the year taking place the first Friday of the month. That’s why we invite you to be part of the next Bandcamp Friday.

The next dates of Bandcamp Fridays 2020 are:

September, 4th 2020
October, 2nd 2020
November, 6th 2020
December, 4th 2020
