Bandcamp Waiving Revenue On Sales This Weekend

Bandcamp Waiving Revenue On Sales This Weekend

A.K. / Friday 5th June, 2020 3:25PM

It's that time again when the wonderful Bandcamp team waive their fees for 24 hours, allowing artists to receive 100% of the profits from their music and merchandise sales. We encourage readers to support recent stand-out releases from Aotearoa POC artists and add Friday the 19th of June to your calendar while you're at it, when Bandcamp will be donating all of their sales income to NAACP Legal Defense Fund. For this weekend however, schedule your shopping spree between 7pm tonight and 7pm Saturday 6th June – scope out our by no means comprehensive selection of excellent recent local tunes to get you started, and explore the amazing sounds on offer via the links below...
