ID3 Parsing For Go

Andrew Scherkus May 21, 2012


Simple ID3 parsing library for go based on the specs at

It doesn't handle everything but at least gets the imporant bits like artist, album, track, etc...


Pass in a suitable io.ReadSeeker and away you go!

f, err := os.Open("foo.mp3")
if err != nil {
        return err
defer f.Close()
tags, err := id3.ReadFile(f)
if err != nil {
        return err


An example tag reading program can be found under id3/tagreader.

go get
tagreader path/to/file.mp3 [...]
