Bandcamp Friday Returns In 2022

While official statements played it pretty close to the chest about resuming Bandcamp Friday after 2021, I saw a hint on Twitter in January 2022 about the return of the promotion this year. Someone had shared a screenshot of their email to Bandcamp support asking when they could expect any information about future Bandcamp Friday dates. The support associate had indicated that they would resume, and that indeed seems to be the case according to a refreshed post on the Bandcamp website & the updated single page answer to the question: Is it Bandcamp Friday?

I take this as exciting news, as I have concentrated most of my Bandcamp purchases on these promotional days which funnel a little extra money to artists & labels. There are about 3 hours and 12 minutes left before the fee waiver begins, so dust off your wishlists (and/or your digital catalogs). Failing that, mark your calendar for March 4th, April 1st, and May 6th, which are listed as future dates. Happy listening!
