Bundle Up, Winter’s A Comin!

Buy full digital discography | M|O|O|N

You can now offer fans your entire digital discography for a special price, and fans can purchase or gift it in a single transaction. Check out a few examples here, here, and here.

The full discography purchase option is not enabled by default. To turn it on, first log in to your Bandcamp account. If you’re eligible to enable full discography purchase, you’ll see a notification linking to the section of your Profile where you set it up:


You can choose to offer your full digital discography for no discount, or from 5 to 90% off. Once you enable full discography purchase and save your Profile, we notify all of your followers automatically.

We quietly launched full discography purchase last week, and based on the percentage of eligible artists who have enabled it, and their earnings so far, we know that if every eligible artist turns it on, we’ll see about $1.8 million in bundles sell over the next few weeks. So get on it!

A few caveats:
Artists must have at least three purchasable albums in order to offer a full discography bundle (two albums is just two albums — three on the other hand… that’s an oeuvre!).

Labels (meaning those with label, not artist, accounts) can offer full discography bundles for any of their artists, provided they meet the three album minimum, and payment for all their releases is directed to the same account.

Subscriber-Exclusive Video

If you have an artist subscription set up, you can now post video to just your paying subscribers! You upload video from desktop, like so:

post a video

And your subscribers can then view your video from their music feed on the web, or in the free Bandcamp app for Android and iOS:

For those of you who had already jury-rigged subscriber-only video by posting links to open-but-not-publicized YouTube and Dropbox URLs, we admire your gumption but are relieved to put that dark chapter behind the both of us!

Artist Subscriptions

You can now create your own subscription service on Bandcamp! Watch the screencast below to learn more, check out subscriptions by some of the artists who helped us test, like Rabbit Rabbit, The Disney Dish, and Jim Guthrie, and visit to get set up!

App update: browse by genre, location, and format

bandcamp discover app

You can now browse Bandcamp’s catalog of 1.8 million albums and 14 million tracks by any genre imaginable, and filter by format and artist location, right from the app. Portland chillwave on cassette? Pfft, you know it! Surf from Madrid on vinyl?! We’re as surprised as you!

The appicon-format lets you filter by artist location…

…and the appicon-format filters results by format.

In the likely event that you are now hyperventilating, please grab a paper bag and have a seat, because you can also follow any such browsing criteria, letting you channel all new beat tapes from Montreal (for example) straight into your music feed:

Tap “follow” at the top of Discover results…

…and whenever there are new suggestions matching your search, they’ll appear in your feed.

To demonstrate the stupefying power of these new crate digging capabilities, we dove into the latest hip hop, electronic, soul and indie coming out of Oakland, California, and compiled the result into our first ever Bandcamp City Guide. Pressed onto 12″ vinyl with a gorgeous gatefold jacket illustrated by Oliver Barrett, the comp features 11 previously unreleased/exclusive tracks from bands we love emanating from the other City by the Bay, plus tips from the artists themselves about their favorite dive bars, record stores, venues, and restaurants.
