Promotion Bar for Free Music.

Breipott is Berlin's promotion bar for the free & legal digital music scene. With terminals to download tracks onto USB sticks, a DJ booth for live shows, and of course, its famous milk rice, Breipott helps its artists get their tracks heard.


The Berlin-based Breipott is a promotional bar for free and legal digital music. The bar works with a team of musicians, DJs, and event organizers to select really free music for its visitors. In the bar's database, the soundPott, a tantalizing collection is offered free of charge.

Music is discovered from online offer, demos, and close collaboration with numerous netlabels. Rights are meticulously checked with GEMA or other commercial collecting societies.

License Usage

Tracks are found almost exclusively under Creative Commons licenses. Licensing conditions vary according to artist preference and particular arrangements with netlabels and other music platforms.


Musicians must often decide between good promotion or almost complete loss of control over their works. Breipott gives musicians their freedom back. It promotes the music while the rights remain with the artists. Alternative licenses like Creative Commons make this possible. The works find a wider audience, and the musicians profit from well-attended live acts.
