Please note that the site runs a policy which does not adhere to any particular set of laws, and states so in its Terms and Conditions, and makes the user responsible for making sure that the content is legal in their own country.



Epitonic also has a large number of online radio stations based on several genres and subgenres that are worth a listen. The site is a little confusing at first, but once you work out where the genre and artist lists are, its fairly simple from there

Last but not the least Amazon is one of the biggest websites out there that offers free music downloads for it’s users. The popular one-stop-shop has a small selection of tracks available for download for free. These are changed regularly, but are often by known artists.
