Regarding the music industry we fan support program due to the spread of new coronavirus infection

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to all those who have been affected by the new coronavirus.
Even in the music industry where our company is located, we have announced the cancellation of a series of events and self-restraint, and we are in a situation where we cannot carry out the creative activities that we take for granted.

As a party and platform holder, is there anything we can do for the music industry that is indebted to us on a daily basis?
LD & K Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Hidemasa Otani), which operates the music crowdfunding service "we fan",
We will start a crowdfunding program (hereinafter referred to as this program) to support artists, events, and offices that have been canceled or postponed due to the influence of the new coronavirus.

Projects for which this program has been applied after our company's review are normal fee 13% (we fan fee 8% + settlement fee 5%),
It is possible to carry out only with "settlement fee 5%".

We fan will strive to support everyone in the music industry affected by the new coronavirus through the support of this program.

Project details

Projects that have been tentatively applied from the entry form below by 11:59:59 AM on March 31, 2020 (Tuesday) and officially released by April 24, 2020 (Tuesday) are eligible.

The 8% we fan fee received from the support money collected by the Keep it All and All or Nothing methods will be free, and only the settlement fee will be 5%.

  • Artists and offices that have suffered damage to expected sales, such as postponement of events they were scheduled to perform due to the influence of the new coronavirus, loss of goods sales, etc. (* support projects by third parties are not eligible)
  • Organizers and related parties of events and performances that were scheduled to be held due to the influence of the new coronavirus have been canceled or postponed, resulting in losses such as venue and operating expenses.
  • Due to the change in the contents of the event, organizers and related parties of events and performances that have incurred new operating costs, etc. by changing the event to a form that prevents contact with an unspecified number of people, such as online distribution of the event.
  • Organizations and individuals who can submit information that can objectively prove that they have suffered damage due to the effects of the new coronavirus
  • The content of the project must not violate public order and morals.

Due to the fear of the virus, which cannot be seen with the naked eye, the decision to cancel and postpone the event that we have been preparing for so far will not be possible.
From a management point of view, of course, we also feel that it will have a huge impact mentally when considering all the people involved.
The other day, we canceled the final event of the one-man tour of our affiliated artist, Uchikokugokumon Doukoukai, and switched to live streaming.
The appearance events of other affiliated artists are also being canceled and postponed one after another.
It was an unavoidable decision considering the feelings of all of you who were looking forward to that one-time only day.
I think that everyone in the music industry shares the same desire to deliver entertainment to customers in any form, just like our company does.
We hope that the situation will be resolved as soon as possible, and that the music-loving artists, related parties, and all customers will return to a peaceful daily life.
Thank you for your kind support.
