Bandcamp brings back the once-a-month "Support" Friday

Bandcamp, Bandcamp Friday Von Dominik André am

The music platform Bandcamp launched "Bandcamp Friday" in 2020 to support the ailing music industry. The idea was simple and effective. The share that the platform normally receives – around 15 % – was suspended for 24 hours. Since the (original) purpose of the platform was for artists to sell their music directly, this had a significant impact on artists' revenue streams. On February 4 the company is continuing its action.
