For that matter, even "Listen for free Deep House and other electronic music on XXX." should make as much sense as either of the two. For free is parenthetical here. –  Kris Sep 26 '13 at 13:57
    
Do you want to put the emphasis on for free or on XXX? –  iterums Sep 26 '13 at 16:29

Which is the most important aspect: the XXX location where the music can be listened to, or the fact that the music can be listened to for free (or free of charge)? The most important of these two is usefully placed at the end of the sentence, in a position of emphasis.

In my opinion, it belongs to the end with a comma.

Listen to Deep House and other electronic music on XXX, for free.

This way, you are specifying an additional attribute of the main object which is music on XXX.
