Bandcamp announce more support for Artists this Friday
This Friday, June 5th, from midnight to midnight Pacific Time. Bandcamp is waiving their share of sales to support artists impacted by Covid-19. There is also a list of artists and labels preparing special releases for Friday, including those donating their share to organizations in support of racial justice and change.
The Covid-19 pandemic is in full force, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are being 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 now an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it. The good news is that we’re already seeing many fans going above and beyond to support artists across Bandcamp.
Also, Bandcamp has announced that on Friday, June 19th, they’ll be donating 100% of their share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to support their work. More info here.
