The bandcamp will continue its special bandcamp Friday series of the year, discounting part of the revenue of all outlets on the first Friday of every month to pay more for musicians from every purchase.
The series began as a one-off at the end of March to get artists extra money after the COVID-19 epidemic forced travel to a stagnant location and forced the closure of individual record stores. After fans spent 4. 3.4 million on music and marches, the platform decided to waive its revenue share on the first Friday of the next three months.
“Because the epidemic is so far away, we will hold Bandcamp Friday on the first Friday of every month until the end of the year,” Bandcamp said in a statement on its website. The next five will be held on 7th August, 4th September, 2nd October, November and 4th December. The duration of each event will be from midnight Pacific time to midnight Pacific time, and BandCamp has even created a website to make sure fans are buying at the right time: Properly dubbed, isitbandcamppride.com .com
So far, the last four bandcamps have sold more than $ 20 million in sales on Friday. Since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic, on average, fans have spent more than সংগ 75 million on music on the platform and in March.
“It’s a good reminder that BandCamp Fridays are an extension of what happens to BandCamp almost every day,” the platform said. “Thank you to all the artists and labels who have shared their music with us, and to the fans who have spent their hard-earned money.”
