Bandcamp has announced that it will continue its monthly Bandcamp Friday initiative for the rest of 2020.
The project, which sees the website waive its fees for a day, was initially founded to help struggling artists and musicians in March as a response to Coronavirus. Since then, it has become a highly-anticipated monthly event, with participants often sharing their Bandcamp Friday recommendations online.
Announcing the extension in a statement, Bandcamp CEO Ethan Diamond said, “Thank you to all the artists and labels who shared their music with us.” Bandcamp Fridays will take place on the first Friday of every month until the end of the year. So far, Bandcamp Fridays has raised over $20 million USD for artists and labels over the last four months.
