Bandcamp launched Bandcamp Fridays in March 2020, where all revenue from fans purchasing music went directly to the artists without any fees taken out by Bandcamp. The event spanned 17 Fridays from March 2020 to the end of 2021 and saw over $70 million dollars go to artists. Now Bandcamp has announced they're bringing the event back this year on the first Fridays of the next few months – February 4, March 4, April 1, and May 6 – alongside a helpful website to let you know if it's Bandcamp Friday.
"If you’ve started to feel guilty about buying music on any day other than Bandcamp Friday, here’s something to keep in mind: on Bandcamp Fridays, an average of 93% of your money reaches the artist/label (after payment processor fees)," added Bandcamp CEO Ethan Diamond. "When you make a purchase on any other day of the month (as 2.5 million of you have since March, buying an additional $190 million worth of music and merch) an average of 82% reaches the artist/label. Every day is a good day to directly support artists on Bandcamp!"
