    This article has been imported from chorus.fm for discussion. All of the forum rules still apply.

    PledgeMusic has stopped running active campaigns:

    We are in discussions with several interested parties about a potential partnership with or acquisition of PledgeMusic. These conversations, if successful, would lead to a transaction which would allow us to meet all of our outstanding obligations. As a result, we are hopeful that, as long as the company is given some breathing space to operate, a solution to these current problems will be found.

    This is bad news. It was good to have a dedicated crowdfunding platform for music; on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, musicians will get lost in the shuffle. Some bands have experimented with Patreon-like subscription models on Bandcamp, but I don't know if that's the right way forward.
