By Artist | By Song | By Year

Geek Pop has been curating and commissioning music about science since 2008. Many of the songs we have featured on our website were created especially for the Geek Pop festival. They span scientific subjects from nanobots to neutron stars, and musical genres from folk to hip-hop.

On this page you can download all the free songs played at Geek Pop festivals between 2008-2011. That’s over 130 songs! Plus, links to a few not-so-free but very downloadable songs (*).

We are eternally grateful to all the artists who have contributed. You can find links to their biographies, lyrics and websites via previous festival pages.

For hundreds more sciencey songs featured on our podcast, see the podcast music archive.
