This list of the top minimalist music bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Minimalist music groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all minimalist music bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest minimalist music bands of all time, since the most famous minimalist music artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best minimalist music music.

You can click on the minimalist music band names to see more information about that particular notable minimalist music group. If they're near the top of the best minimalist music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top minimalist music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the minimalist music band names themselves.

Artists here include everything from Brian Eno to Philip Glass. Make sure to rock the vote by upvoting the best artists on this list. Downvote the artists you hate (Alan Vega, Martin Rev, etc.) or show them some love by voting them up if you like them.

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

The list includes all new minimalist music 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 minimalist music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into minimalist music 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 minimalist music bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent minimalist music bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best minimalist music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest minimalist music 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 minimalist music bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

You can change the order of the list by having your Facebook friends vote too. (55 items)
