80 Millionen US-Dollar: Crowdfunding in der Musikbranche und darüber hinaus

Paid Content hat eine Übersicht zum aktuellen Stand von Crowdfunding veröffentlicht. Demnach haben die verschiedenen Crowdfunding-Plattformen in den USA mittlerweile über 80 Mio. $ für Projekte einsammeln können.

Paid Content geht auch auf die Bedeutung von Crowdfunding für die Musikbranche ein:

In music, which has long been enamoured with the fan-funding model, recognisable names like Cornershop, The Subways, Gang Of Four and Funeral For A Friend are amongst the big acts employing the model through PledgeMusic. Marillion and Idlewild have done it themselves independently. Public Enemy financed its last effort through Sellaband.

“We’ve been witnessing first hand the struggles of the independent artist,” says Jamie Lokoff of FeedTheMuse.net, an artist-funding site started out of Lokoff’s Philadelphia recording studio, itself bootstrapped using borrowed cash in May 2009. “The music industry is in such a state of disarray, with no real concrete answer, that we felt it important to at least get our hat in the ring, to be part of the solution.”
