The German Musikpiraten e. V. (music pirates registered association) started the Free! Music! Contest 2010. The aim is to promote artists who publish their music under Creative Commons licences. One song per artist can be registered until the end of July. Participants can choose to upload additional stems of their songs which may be used by other participants in the remix-phase ending August 22nd.

Patron of the contest is the author Cory Doctorow who published several bestseller books under Creative Commons licences.

The result of the contest will be a sampler which will be available on CD and as free download. A concert is scheduled for October 2nd at Wiesbaden Kreativfabrik including performances of selected participants and an exclusive—yet so far unnamed—headliner.
