Bandcamp will continue to help out artists through the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday (12/16), the online music marketplace announced that it will be carrying Bandcamp Fridays, their direct-to-artist initiative to financially help musicians by waiving revenue shares, into 2021 starting February until May.
Fans paid artists $40 million during the nine Bandcamp Fridays we held this year. Big thanks to everyone who participated, here’s what we’re doing in 2021: https://t.co/0KcZi3LKOj— bandcamp (@Bandcamp) December 15, 2020
Bandcamp Fridays, which takes place on the first Friday of the month, kicked off in March and has since raised $40 million to help cover rent, mortgages, groceries, medications, and much more for these strugging artists.
