Back in March, Bandcamp waived their revenue cut for all sales sales for 24 hours in an effort to help musicians hit hard by tour and show cancellations. As a result, folks ended up spending $4.3 million dollars on music and merch—fifteen times the amount of regular day sales. Today, they’re doing it again.
From midnight to midnight PDT, anything you spend on Bandcamp will go 100% to artists. The company will wave all revenue shares again on June 5 and July 3. If you’ve been waiting to pick up some records or snag a new shirt, now is the best time to support your favorite musicians.
“It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support,” Bandcamp co-founder and CEO Ethan Diamond said. “We hope you’ll join us through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time.”
