Bandcamp is an online record store and music community where passionate fans discover, connect with, and directly support the artists they love.

Bandcamp has launched a new feature called Listening Parties!

Listening Parties are a new kind of event on Bandcamp Live that helps Artists build momentum around their release by getting ‘in the room’ with fans to chat and listen to the album together in real-time. Free and easy to host and attend, Listening Parties offer a space where fans can ask questions, share reactions, and buy the album in all available formats. 

Artists can host a Listening Party anytime time they like

  • To drive sales during pre-order
  • To celebrate an album on release day
  • To commemorate a classic on its anniversary or repressing.

Cutting through the noise of social media, Listening Parties enable artists to celebrate and promote a release, and engage directly with fans.

A2IM represents these independently owned small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) interests in the marketplace, in the media, on Capitol Hill, and as part of the global music community.
