Partner Up with Pledge Music
At BandWagon we’re passionate about independent music and have partnered up with Pledge Music to help artists and fans connect. In our experience, fans want to support their favourite musicians.
What Is Pledge Music?
Pledge is a full-service music company that gives you the tools to creatively build and connect with your fan base while getting your music to the masses. You can customise your campaign and offer fans exclusive merch, music and even a home cooked dinner in return for their support. By pledging fans can support you and follow your progress through the campaign. And the best part? You retain 100 percent of your rights.
Why Should I Use It?
These days artists need to be more creative in how the fund and sustain their career.Pledge Music have an impressive track record in helping bands not only keep in touch with fans and build audiences, but also generate that sorely needed revenue in an authentic and creative way. It also offers ways to capture data about your most active fans, allowing you to continue the relationship beyond the campaign. In short: Pledge gives your fans an opportunity to support you, helps you build a relationship with real fans and gives you a way to raise funds for your music career – what have you got to lose?

No one expects you to be a technical whizz kid and the Pledge Music site is designed for artists just like you. If you’re worried, there’s a dedicated team at Pledge to answer any questions and guide you through the process of setting up your campaign.
Who Else Has Used It?
Some of our favourite artists have used Pledge Music to support an upcoming tour, the recording of an album or a special project they’ve devised. Son Of Dave, sold albums and specially embroider handkerchiefs to support the recording of the record; Amanda Palmer offers her fans signed posters and a place at her ‘salon’ webcast; ABBA are offering an official photo book, postcards and limited edition music; Buzzcocks are recording a new record and giving fans to a chance to pledge for the album and meet and greets whilst giving part of the proceeds to charity – even Slash and Ben Folds Five have run campaigns on Pledge Music all sending out the message to fans – I’m working on a new project, and I want you to be part of it!
