SXSW 2010 (and all years back to 2005) music downloads

Every year music lovers from across the country head to Austin, Texas for SXSW, and for the past six of those years, SXSW has offered hundreds of DRM-free tracks from artists playing at SXSW—and it's all available via BitTorrent. Just head to the Home of the Unofficial SXSW torrents to grab the first torrent, featured 646 tracks weighing in at 3.35 GB. These songs are all freely available on the official SXSW web site, but this handy site wraps them all up into a much more convenient torrent. A second torrent is on the way (with over 200 more free and legit tracks). The site also hosts every collection since SXSW 2005, so if you're in the mood for some new music or just free (and legitimate) music, head on over and get your download on.



These torrents include all the MP3 files publicly available on the SXSW website as of March 6, 2010. There are 1038 files totaling 5.43GB.

The first torrent was initially seeded on February 15, 2010 and the second on March 6, 2010:

Part 1 is extremely well seeded at this point and should be a speedy download. Part 2 will be slow to download initially.

Please keep the torrents open as long as possible after downloading!

Update: Torrents for 2005-2009 are back online! See the sidebar for details.

If you need a good BitTorrent client, I suggest:

Please note
: If artists chose not to submit an MP3 for SXSW it will not be included here, even if available elsewhere online. Please don't ask.
