Bandcamp Announces Plans To Help Artists Start Their Own Subscription Services


As The Guardian reports, soon all artists utilizing Bandcamp’s streaming and storefront service will be able to set up their own subscription services for their fanbase.

Musicians will be able to set the price, whether or not they release the music to subscribers only and are able to give them exclusive discounts on their merchandise sold through Bandcamp among other options. The point is, Bandcamp is leaving it entirely up to the artist and still only taking their standard 15% revenue share.

When asked about the new feature, chief executive Ethan Diamond said, “The whole motivation here is that when you get to a point that you love an artist – when you go from liking them to being a real true fan of theirs – at some point you just want everything they make. You just want to support everything that they do.” Diamond is also quoted as saying, “It’s kinda like what U2 and Apple did, except that it’s music that you actually want!”
