It’s a question we get all the time at DJ City. Where is the best place to legally download free DJ Music?

Here are our 5 Top Sites for Free and Top 5 for Paid DJ Music.


FREE

#1 SoundCloud

soundcloud

SoundCloud is very popular both for DJs and general listeners. Although there are some strict policies against copyright material, you can still find quality remixes and original music to add to your set. Some offer a free download, or simply a ‘Like’ on Facebook in exchange for a download. It’s also a fantastic platform to promote your own music!


#2 Bandcamp

Although it isn’t well known in Australia, Bandcamp is widely used in the US. Artists from around the world promote their music and give users the opportunity to support their favourites. All tracks can be played for free on the site with the choice of purchasing an album or a specific track at customisable prices. If you wish, you can pay more than required for the album or track. Some artists offer free music downloads with the option of giving a donation or joining their emailing list. This is a great site for supporting fellow musicians.


#3 Facebook
