As students we often find creative ways to get new music. Luckily there is a new option. The SXSX ’09 a Music Festival in Austin, Texas has been recently been going on, the music portion ends on March 22. The festival is splict to three categories: film, video, and music. Their goal as stated on their website is:
SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or the Internet. And Austin continues to be the perfect location
Throughout music festival artists were allowed to publicly (this means free to you and me) post music on the SXSW website. Luckily Ben Stoit collected all the music and posted them as torrents here. Thanks for keeping us out of trouble with the RIAA for now Ben! Support this initiative of free legal music downloads by seeding this torrent after downloading.
