Online music company Bandcamp started the Bandcamp Fridays series last March to support artists impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative enables Bandcamp to waive its revenue share on all sales on the first Friday of every month to give musicians more money from each purchase.

In just four days, fans put more than $20 million directly into the pockets of artists and labels. Additionally, fans have also bought more than $75 million worth of music and merchandise directly from artists and labels, and to date, fans have paid artists over half a billion(!) dollars on Bandcamp.
