Bandcamp Friday: August 7th

Bandcamp is donating all its usual fees to artists from midnight to midnight PDT today, Friday, August 6th, as the scene continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic.

This is now the fifth time Bandcamp has waived its fees. The music platform announced last month that it would extend the practice through the rest of the year, with Bandcamp Friday falling on the first Friday of each month.

In addition, Bandcamp now hosts a searchable Black Bandcamp database, featuring thousands of Black artists and labels on the platform. To mark the recent surge in protests for Black trans people, there’s also the crowdsourced lists Black Femme Identifying Electronic Music Artists and Black Trans & Nonbinary Bandcamp Day.

For more recent releases, our list from July’s no-fees Friday is here.

Read Matt McDermott’s feature on how Bandcamp is changing underground music.
