Best music websites

Print Friendly

Music is one of the few things that can unite people – different generations, backgrounds and economic classes can all come together over their shared love of a musician or song, and that’s what makes it so powerful.

If you’re a music lover, there are plenty of places to share your passion online and find others who feel the same. From sites to listen to new music to the best places to read news and reviews, here are some great ways to celebrate and enjoy music online…

For reviews

Rolling Stone – Rolling Stone has been one of the most prominent music and pop culture magazines for decades, and its website is no less impressive. Here you can find news and reviews, interviews and even MP3 downloads.

All Music – You can find plenty of new reviews on this website, but there’s also a great selection of editor reviews of their favourite albums from years before. The variety of genres you can find here is excellent, and when you make an account, you can also receive personalised recommendations based on other music you like.

NME – NME or New Musical Express, is a weekly music magazine that’s been published since 1952. It is one of the most iconic sources of music news and reviews in Britain, a tradition carried on to its website, where you can find everything from information about upcoming gigs to the latest news on popular musicians.

For listening

Soundcloud – Soundcloud is considered one of the most reliable places to find new music and connect with up-and-coming artists. The streaming service lets users upload and listen to tracks for free, so if you love discovering new acts or independent artists, this is the place for you

Spotify – This popular music streaming service also has a web version where you can listen online. A free account will give you access to a huge catalogue of songs, as well as expertly curated playlists and playlists created by other users.

BBC Music – The BBC is an excellent source of new and well-loved music, most of it available online for free. From the music website you can create playlists, listen to songs and catch up on popular music radio programmes as well.
