Band bearing has been around since 2008 and serves as an online showcase for independent artists to sell their music directly to fans. If you’re a music lover, Bandcamp is like a musical candy store with content in dozens of categories from rock to reggae, as well as music for kids and even audiobooks. Unfortunately, Bandcamp doesn’t have a way to search for free music built into the navigation, but it’s still easy. To find free music on Bandcamp, search “free downloads” and you can then search for tracks that you can either just download for free or name your own price (and you can name zero dollars).

The Internet Archive

It also has a massive library of songs, concerts, audiobooks, podcasts, 78rpm records and more on the site Audio Archive, where you can search by countless filter criteria, including music genres. Not everything here is downloadable, but if music is downloadable, there are plenty of file format options available to you.

Noise trade is one of the unusual free music download sites that you will come across. A part of the Paste Magazine website, it connects artists directly with fans by allowing you to stream music and, in most cases, download tracks for free. And you don’t have to select individual tracks – when you want to download music, you get all the tracks in a specific artist’s collection in a single ZIP file. NoiseTrade features some mainstream artists in a variety of genres, and the only thing you have to do to download tracks is provide your email address so artists can get in touch with you.

It’s also a place for music fans to discover and connect with news artists. To do this, you can browse and search music, use the built-in player, and download tracks too.

All search results contain tracks that you can download for free.

Last fm

Last.fm still maintains a small collection of free titles.

David Johnson

Last fm was once a popular destination for free music streaming in the early days of the internet, but the site discontinued its streaming services in 2014 and now serves primarily as a destination for music recommendations based on users’ listening habits. That said, there is still a small catalog of free music here that you can legally download for free. the Download free music Page at Last.fm has a simple, non-searchable list of 227 songs that you can play and download in MP3 format. There’s no indication of style or genre, so using this library requires some exploration.
