Epic Games has this week announced the acquisition of the Bandcamp music marketplace and community which was first founded back in 2008. Even though Epic acquires Bandcamp users will be pleased to know that the service will continue to operate as a standalone marketplace and music community.
“Bandcamp’s mission is to help spread the healing power of music by building a community where artists thrive through the direct support of their fans,” said Ethan Diamond, CEO and co-founder of Bandcamp. “In Epic, we’ve found a partner who believes as deeply as we do that the future of music, and art itself, depends on the creation of equitable and inclusive communities like the one our fans and artists have helped to build. We’re excited to work alongside the Epic team to accelerate the realization of our mission and pursue our shared goal of empowering more creators in a fair and open way.”
