In March, Bandcamp announced an initiative to help musicians affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The platform waives the percentage reduction in sales on the first Friday of each month. After the last band camp on Friday in December 2020, the company has announced an extension of the program. The Bandcamp Fridays last until May 2021: February 5th, March 5th, April 2nd and May 7th. (There will be no band camp Friday on January 1, 2021.)
In addition to expanding the Bandcamp on Friday, Bandcamp announced that fans had spent $ 40 million on the monthly promotions. In November, the platform launched a new live stream feature for artists to host remote shows.
