Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Bandcamp

Bandcamp’s mission is to create the best possible service for artists and labels to share and earn money from their music, and for fans to discover and enjoy it.

We believe that music is an indispensable part of culture, and for that culture to thrive, artists—no matter the size of their audience—must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work. Without this belief, our mission would be meaningless, and it’s why we’ve built our business around a model that puts the artist first.

When you buy something on Bandcamp, whether it’s digital music, vinyl, or a t-shirt, ticket or cassette, 80-85% of your money goes to the artist, and we pay out daily. The remainder goes to payment processor fees and Bandcamp’s revenue share, which is 10-15% on digital items, and 10% on physical goods.

Since we only make money when artists make a lot more money, our interests remain aligned with those of the community we serve. It’s a straightforward approach, and one we’re happy to say works well. Fans have paid artists $310 million using Bandcamp, and $6.3 million in the past 30 days alone. We were founded in 2007, have been profitable since 2012, and we’re growing rapidly. Bandcamp is used by millions of fans around the world, and is an indispensable tool for hundreds of thousands of artists and more than 3,000 labels. The New York Times called Bandcamp “one of the greatest underground-culture bazaars of our time,” Fast Company named us one of the most innovative companies in music, and the American Association of Independent Music honored us with their 2017 Independent Champion award.

We consider all that a fine start, but only a start. We continue to work tirelessly to build an enduring and valuable service, and whether you’re an artist, fan, label, or one of the people listed here, we hope you’ll be a part of it.
