Today, June 5th, Bandcamp is providing artists another 24 hours of waived fees. In support of racial justice, I’ve put together a list of 60+ recommendations of artists who are people of color, labels owned by POC, and ally artists/labels that are donating their proceeds to social justice initiatives. Check it out below and remember to head back to Bandcamp on the 19th, as the site will be donating all of its proceeds that day to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund!
