Every year, more than 2,000 acts swarm to SXSW — and every year, NPR Music painstakingly handpicks 100 of the music festival’s best discoveries for a downloadable six-hour, hundred-song sampler. We call it The Austin 100, and it’s virtually guaranteed to contain something you’ll love that you didn’t know existed.

For the next 30 days, you can download The Austin 100 from this page — either song by song or with one click, in its 839 MB entirety — as well as stream it as a continuous mix, both here and through NPR Music’s various mobile apps.

Come back to NPR.org/SXSW for live concerts, photos, videos and dispatches from this year’s festival.
