Greg Hewgill releases his annual collection of all the free music made available by SXSW, once again turning it all into a two-part BitTorrent download.
Austin, Texas has been host to the Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) since 1987 due largely to its reputation as a cosmopolitan city with a longstanding eclectic music scene that can be traced back to its colonial origins. SXSW, which kicks off today, March 9th, and runs through March 18th, is a conference and festival event series for entertainment and related media industry professionals.
Since 2005 SXSW organizers have been making individual songs from emerging artists available to download on the SXSW.com music site, and every year a devoted music fan at SXSWTorrent has been cataloging them all and releasing them as a two-part free BitTorrent download.
This year’s collection is comprised of 1,219 files totaling 7.52GB, and includes all the music tracks made available by SXSW as of March 6th, 2012.
- SXSW_2012_Showcasing_Artists_Part1.torrent - 771 files, 4.71GB
- SXSW_2012_Showcasing_Artists_Part2.torrent - 448 files, 2.80GB
