With the coronavirus pandemic cancelling most if not all tours for the foreseeable future, bands have found themselves without their main source of income, and with no real idea of when it'll return. Now is a great time to support your favorite band by buying their music and merch, and one way to do that is via artists' Bandcamp pages. Bandcamp will be waiving their cut of all sales from purchases made on Friday, 3/20. More from co-founder and CEO Ethan Diamond:

The Covid-19 pandemic is in full force, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are being canceled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is now an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it. The good news is that we’re already seeing many fans going above and beyond to support artists across Bandcamp.

To raise even more awareness around the pandemic’s impact on musicians everywhere, we’re waiving our revenue share on sales this Friday, March 20 (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time), and rallying the Bandcamp community to put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.

For many artists, a single day of boosted sales can mean the difference between being able to pay rent or not. 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.

It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, and we hope you’ll join us on Friday and through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time.

Meanwhile, Run For Cover has made their entire Bandcamp catalog "pay what you want" for now, and will be passing along all proceeds to their artists, who include Camp Cope (and Georgia Maq), Turnover, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, Field Medic, Katie Dey, Citizen, Self Defense Family, and more.
