Bandcamp to waive fees on first Friday of every month


Once a month for the next three months, the full cost of your purchase on Bandcamp will go direct to labels and artists.

Bandcamp has announced it will waive its administration fees for artists and labels on the first Friday of the month for the next three months. The decision comes after the platform withdrew its fees for a day back in March, prompting fans to purchase over $3 million worth of music in 24 hours. The move is intended to help independent artists and labels, many of whom are feeling the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bandcamp will waive its fees on 1 May, 5 June and 3 July from midnight to midnight pacific time. Check out our list from March’s fee withdrawal of the essential records to buy on Bandcamp.
