With the current situation caused by Covid-19, the online music industry has been forced in to overdrive with bands, artists and organisations taking to Facebook to stream live sets.

With this in mind, Facebook has announced new changes to allow artists to charge for streaming.

Facebook has announced huge changes for its Live platform, including plans to allow artists charge for entry to livestreams, live sets and conferences, but, are people already fed up of watching free sets and do bands and artists feel this is a great idea but a few weeks too late?

The ‘Live With’ will also make another appearance and will allow co-hosts to join a stream, and the integration of livestreams into online-only event pages.

No Live Payment has been announced as yet, or when it will come in to effect. Be sure Facebook will no doubt be taking a commission / % so be ready for that.

Stay tuned for more news on this story. As soon as we know more, we’ll let you know.
