The move was revealed in an email to artists and labels sent by Bandcamp today. The platform’s fees will once again be waived for a 24-hour period, so that all proceeds from sales go direct to artists (or labels). Bandcamp did their first direct-to-artist sale earlier this year, on March 20, when users spent over $4 million in a record day for sales. (Check out our buyer’s guide from that sale.)
In an effort to help support musicians, RA has started a weekly Bandcamp highlights column featuring some of our favourite release from each week. Check out the most recent one here.
