Bandcamp is donating 100 percent of all purchases through 11:59 p.m. today directly to artists. The streaming and music download service, which works with many independent artists, joins many record labels like Run For Cover that have committed to send their shares of sales directly to artists.
“For many artists, a single day of boosted sales can mean the difference between being able to pay rent or not,” CEO Ethan Diamond said in a news release. “Still, we consider this just a starting point. Musicians will continue to feel the effects of lost touring income for many months to come, so we’re also sharing some ideas below on how fans can support the artists they love and how artists can give fans new, creative ways to provide support.”
Helping is simple. Just make a purchase from your favorite artists’ Bandcamp page.
