The article Free Music List December 2005 was a very successful article back in 2005 and I finally found the time to update the article with new sites and get rid of links to sites that do not exist anymore. Most of the sites listed below allow downloads even for non registered users, several ask you to register after downloading some albums and some require a registration before you can start to download or stream music.

I added genres to several sites if it was obvious and did not mention one if the site offered more than one genre. Downloads means that you can directly download music - normally mp3 files - from the site while streaming means that you can stream the music on the website.

Take a look at my article about Grab++ for a possible method to download music from sites that stream music. Feel free to add any music site that you know and is not in the list.

    Last one. Promise.

    What a list! It’s going to take me a ton of time to get through it! Another site that has come up recently for free music is Jamendo. I haven’t had a chance to look through it much, but what I saw looked pretty good.

    Thanks a lot Martin. It’s greatly appreciated.

    Terrific list BTW!

    Michael I changed it.

  14. Michael Gregoire said on July 19, 2007 at 9:28 pm

    Thanks for mentioning our netBloc series… but you referenced it incorrectly with your link: NetBloc [downloads]

    The site is named blocSonic. Our netBloc series is a series of compilations that each contain 10 gems from the world of net audio. The link is also incorrect. You linked to one particular release. You should have perhaps linked to the homepage:

    Thanks again for adding us to your list.
