Three years ago, we heard about a little idea called "Netlabel Day," and today is the third annual event! An answer to Record Store Day, but with more free stuff, Netlabel Day is organized by M.I.S.T. Records and, at last count, will be the debut of 104 releases by artists from around the world! Participants include Yes No Wave, blocSonic, Happy Puppy Records, Keshcology, Dubophonic, Soisloscerdos, Vulpiano Records, Spettro, and many many more!
Check out this list of supporting netlabels and the full list of releases. You can get a lot of Netlabel Day '17 releases right here on FMA, so start digging! We'll get you started with a few tastes below:

Welcome to Netlabel Day 2016! Now in its second consecutive year, this event is in the spirit of Record Store day, but every release is available for everyone -- digitally! Collecting exclusive releases from artists hailing from five continents, this is a special occasion indeed. Put together by M.I.S.T. netlabel from Chile, last year there were more than 80 labels and 120 fresh releases! Today, there are more than that. Like, waaayyyy more. Like, 176 of them! So nab some killer free releases here!
To check out the full list of participating labels, unaffiliated mucisians, and of course, releases, please visit the Netlabel Day site, or stay tuned to our Twitter feed for announcements about Netlabel Day releases that are being shared here on FMA! If you live in Mexico City, Santiago, West Sussex/Worthing, Madrid, Montreal, or Ljubljana, head over to the event near you!
So far, here's what's been added to FMA (we will add to this list):

Today is June 15, I know, but yesterday we released two new compilations with independent music, gathering 18 netlabels from all over the world in one album. That's something that the major labels can't do because "it's not profitable". Come on, let's do this for the art!
Here on FMA you can find -lovely- songs by Hiroshima Dandys, Csum, Charles White, Élansson, Unchained Zebra and more, and you can download all this right now for free (after all it's Free Music Archive, of course you can). But that's not all.
As you may know, Netlabel Day was created in Chile by M.I.S.T. Records, so we felt that we should do something for the Chilean music as well. After all, it's our country and beyond all the corruption stories and the social chaos that we have right now (we aren't having good times here, to be honest), our mission is support the Chilean culture as well, so we decided to release a compilation with Chilean music in Sazoot, a Chilean digital music store, completely free for everyone. They're our friends, so we really recommend you to visit their enormous catalog too.
There's one month left for the big day, so be prepared... A lot of new music is coming, and "it's not just free music; it's good music".

I didn't know exactly how to let you know about this, but yes... We're making a new promo compilation for FMA with music from the participating labels and it will be amazing. As you may know, this isn't the first time that we do something like this, because last year we made a lovely compilation (that you can download right here).
I can't tell you yet when it will be released, but... June. That's all you have to know by now.
Cheers, everyone. Remember that Netlabel Day 2016 is happening once again on July 14, but every day can be Netlabel Day. Support them and show your love to them!
