Bandcamp launches new live streaming service, Bandcamp Live



With 23 artists announced for its first shows including Madison McFerren, (Liv).e, Demae, Surprise Chef, and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

Bandcamp has announced a new livestreaming feature, called Bandcamp Live.

Bandcamp Live will allow artists to easily create ticketed live streams, with additional features including a ‘virtual merch table’, an optional chat room, and the ability to notify fans when an artist announces a show. It will also let artists select the ticket price themselves.

While Bandcamp eventually intends to take a 10% cut, the platform is waving its fees until the 31st March 2021 in order to support artists during the Coronavirus pandemic.

So far, artists confirmed for a Bandcamp Live set include Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, (Liv).e, and Demae, Surprise Chef, and Madison McFerrin.

Bandcamp Live marks the latest move by the platform to support artists, following on from the success of Bandcamp Friday, which has so far raised over £26 million.
