Summerstage: Vote for Artists to Perform
For the upcoming 30th anniversary, SummerStage has partnered with WeDemand, a groundbreaking website that gets fans directly involved in the process of making a concert happen. WeDemand will share fan generated demand data with SummerStage’s team of curators, enabling a one-on-one conversation to inform them of the artists that festival goers want to see perform.
In the first part of the campaign, audiences will be able to submit any artist they want to see play the festival. Afterwards, they will be able to select from a short list of the most popular artists. In the final phase, the most demanded artists will have their concerts confirmed once enough donors have pledged in a crowdfunding campaign. These concerts will all be free.
Looks like Nas, Lauryn Hill, FKA Twigs, and a few more artists are in the lead to play next year. Vote for your favorite artist!

Revamp Your Music Library for FREE
Indie Shuffle is my number one go to for music. You should use this website if you’re looking to spice up your daily playlist and ditch your old, boring Pandora/Spotify station. You’ll find your favorite alternative artists, their new releases, insanely cool remixes of your favorite songs, and bands/producers/DJs/MCs from around the world who are gaining recognition, already established or oldies in the game. I applaud Indie Shuffle and their team of writers/contributors/music researchers for their impeccable taste in music and giving me a reason to come back EVERYDAY to use their website.
NoiseTrade is my second go to for music discovery. Here you will find FREE albums, EPs, LPs, singles, and record label mix tapes for your downloading pleasure. NoiseTrade acts as a free music site and an artist promotion platform. Once you subscribe, you will receive a weekly newsletter with the newest albums being released, and the ability to download countless albums of all different genres, all for free. All they ask for? Spreading the word on social media platforms or a small donation. Since my college budget struggles with the donation side of it, I blast the artists across Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr.
Free Music Archive is linked with WFMU, the largest independent/freeform radio in America that brings you legal free downloads of musics of all types thanks to its partnerships with curators from all over. There are two approaches to finding music on its website, similar to that of Soundcloud. First, free music is released from its partner curators, and second, users are able to post their own music on to the site for others to enjoy. The main page features articles on the newest music and artists and an RSS feed along the side to bring you music instantly, as well as their free downloads. Search for music by curator, genre, or subscribe to their website and get a “Song of The Day” everyday to immerse yourself into their free music world.
Jamendo is a website that I’ve come across more recently in my hunt for new music. It is one of the largest web music libraries around, and although you might not be able to find your favorite artists, you will definitely find artists you have never heard before that might just become your favorite. Search music by latest release, most downloaded, or most played based on used ratings. Jamendo also offers radio stations- you pick the mood and let Jamendo do the talking. Want an alternative to the alternative? Check out Jamendo.
Hype Machine has carefully handpicked +800 music blogs and brings them to one website so that you can easily discover music and blogs that suit your tastes. Acting as a newsfeed for music blogs, you’ll get everything in one, making your life a lot easier. Sign up so that you can favorite the songs you love and follow your friends to get their favorites on your daily newsfeed. Simple. Easy. Get on it.
