So it seems we jumped the gun declaring that the ‘Bandcamp Friday’ series had come to an end. Initially conceived to help combat the loss of touring income for artists, it has since paved the way for compilations where proceeds are earmarked for charitable donation, and after a month-long hiatus, Bandcamp have waived their fees for another 24-hours today.

Fans have spent over $75 million on the platform since the series’ inception, but with so much music to wade through, we singled out several standout charitable contributions.
