20 years after the conception of the MP3 format.
An idea that revolutionized the music history. 2 decades after a handful of labels from all over the planet get together to celebrate the first Netlabel Day.
On July 14, every single netlabel around the world is invited to join us in the first Netlabel Day ever, and you can be part of this.
A netlabel works on the Internet to let you know about the best independent music, and for supporting independent musicians from all over the world… So it is time to celebrate it!
We are gonna release free and independent music in high quality format, thanks to our 80 participating labels from all around the world. Also, we have more than 13 unsigned and independent artists that will be releasing new and original stuff too, so there’s a lot of free music coming!
So for you to have a glimpse, one of the best, if not the best creative commons label from the planet, LCL is also joining the initiative.
There is everything you really want to find.
Independent Labels from all over the globe have gathered in a titanic effort, to release their stuff, whether on the Free Music Archive, Internet Player, Archive.org or Bandcamp.
You will find thousands of artists and labels supporting the initiave.
our own Latino Resiste has an amazing display of independent artists, which will give you a glimpse of what you can grab for free all over the web
Or take this amazing and complete different approach one from Permutate
Because we are taking about thousands of tracks, streams and artists it is easier to link you to the home page of the initiative:

RELEASES & PARTICIPANT LABELS.
We believe that musical revolution supported by our beloved Internet is over.
We know that you listen to a lot of music, but you don’t buy albums in a physical record store, and it’s quite probable that your city doesn’t even have one. You probably download music on iTunes or any other music service. You probably are an active user of Spotify or Pandora, but where did you get your musical library?
As we said, the musical revolution supported by Internet is over, because this revolution is now the present of the music.
The “Major labels” still doesn’t get it, that’s why “Record Store Day is dying” (1, 2, 3, 4) so we are offering you an alternative way to consume more and better music. Forget about the well-known artists… The Netlabel Day is a space made by truly independent artists and labels for all the people who listens and supports independent art movements.
Finally, a little question, which is the main engine of all this: What if media (or music indie journalists), record stores and also record labels begin to support to the independent musicians and artists once again, just as the 80’s and 90’s? In a real way, not just trying to sell some more albums (unnecessary hype), collecting clicks to their articles or supporting their friends’ bands.
Give the first kick for this is the challenge. Our challenge.
