Bandcamp Continues Their Support For Independent Artists Around The World

On March 20th, 2020, which was a Friday, Bandcamp decided to waive their revenue share from all sold music in order to support independent musicians that are being tremendously affected by the global Covid-19 virus.

The result: fans bought 4.3 million dollars worth of music which is 15 times the normal Friday. This global initiative helped artists around the world to pay their rent, pay their medical bills and so much more. This was a unique and incredible feat.

But the virus and the crisis is still going strong and so Bandcamp has decided to up their game and waive their revenue share on three upcoming dates: the first Friday of the next three months, May 1st, June 5th and July 3rd.

If you want to support independent musicians around the world during these peculiar and difficult times then checking out awesome music on Bandcamp on the before mentioned dates is a great start.
