Tomorrow marks another day of Bandcamp‘s initiative to put money in the pockets of artists during the coronavirus pandemic by getting rid of their fees but many artists and labels are deciding to donate all of their profits to Black Lives Matter initiatives.
The company even has a full list of participants which you can find here to start considering the best ways to put your money to good use if you plan on spending some cash on Bandcamp tomorrow.
On June 5 from midnight to midnight PDT, Bandcamp is waiving their fees for all sales. Their last campaign doing this brought in $7.1 million in just 24 hours so there’s a lot of money that can be brought in for various funds tomorrow.
If you would like to see a comprehensive list of participants and which organizations they’re donating to, check here. A mass community-led spreadsheet of black producers, artists and labels can also be found here.
We’re waiving our share of sales this Friday, June 5th, from midnight to midnight PDT. Here’s a list of artists and labels with special releases, including many donating to organizations in support of racial justice and change. https://t.co/G5W0kdakHz

Tomorrow, our label @AFrecordsPGH will be donating 100% of Bandcamp proceeds to #CampaignZero. Additionally, we’ll be offering up our own socials to amplify voices in the Black community in the coming days so be on the watch for that as well.
