Strap on Your Feed Bag!

If you’ve got a fan account on Bandcamp, we’ve got a great new way for you to discover music. Your music feed shows you the activity of all the fans and artists you follow, and lets you listen to their picks and new releases instantly. You’ll see when someone you follow buys an album, and you can listen to their favorite track and see what they had to say about it. We’ll show you when someone new starts following you and let you explore their collection. And we’ll even give you a heads up when someone you don’t follow buys one of your more niche records, because clearly that’s a person with exceptional taste whose collection you’ll want to check out too.

You get to your feed by clicking “music feed” in the menubar (or by just going to bandcamp.com/yourfanname/feed). And if you don’t have a fan account yet, you can learn more about the history here, and then get on it.

Minor aside before you gaze upon the majesty of the screenshot below: if you prefer the feed over the email digest, you can now disable the digest from your settings page.

    That’s a great feature!
    Is it planned to provide a rss feed? That would be awesome! Else I might forget to visit this page.
    Cheeers!

    This is a great start. I’d really like to see the new releases of artists I follow as the focus of the page (maybe a tab or filter). Seems like something that should just be filter on the normal ‘discover artists’ page, if not here.

    Awesome feature. Would love to see this feature in the app, and the ability to search for new music and buy through the app would be awesome. Be very cool if it the app automatically synched the album with iTunes’s when I plug my phone into the PC as well :)

    I’d love for the feed to continue playing once i hit a m’master’ play at the top, then, rather than selecting which i particularly want to hear, it would be upon me to skip to the next selection when i felt the need.
    Great work nonetheless!!
