It's a new daily record after $4.3 million was spent in one day in March

The results are in for Bandcamp's second fee-waive day which happened last Friday (May 1).

The day saw Bandcamp waive its usual 15% cut of all sales made via the website, and it's now been revealed that fans spent over $7.1 million in one day. That's a new daily record and almost double the $4.3 million that fans spent via Bandcamp on March 20 when the company did its first fee-waive sale. Around 800,000 releases were purchased on May 1, which works out at 15 times the usual amount sold on a Friday, Bandcamp says.

Two further such sales are currently planned for June 5 and July 3. We at tQ provided our own guide last Friday to recent releases that you can purchase right now via Bandcamp here.
