Published Apr 20, 2020Last month, Bandcamp helped out artists and labels affected by coronavirus lockdowns by waiving its revenue share on all purchases for a 24-hour period. It went extremely well, as fans purchased a total of 800,000 items to the tune of $4.3 million USD. In fact, it went so well that the platform is doing it again.
In an announcement, Bandcamp announced plans to waive its revenue share on May 1. The company also promised additional festivities to take place that day, although the details haven't been revealed. More details will apparently come next Monday (April 27).
So if you've been thinking about dropping some money on your favourite local band, you might want to hold off until May 1.
