This list of the top folktronica bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Folktronica groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs.

You can click on the folktronica band names to see more information about that particular notable folktronica group. If they're near the top of the best folktronica artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available.

Artists include everything from Portishead to MGMT. You decide which of these artists are the best ones by casting your votes. What will come out on top in the end? Claudio Sanchez? The Beta Band?

All important, significant and iconic names in folktronica music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new folktronica bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of folktronica, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into folktronica music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good folktronica bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent folktronica bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best folktronica bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest folktronica musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular folktronica bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
