Subject: Advertising in fRoots May edition R

Importance: High
Issue 323 of the leading folk, roots & world music magazine

Tuesday 16th March is final booking deadline (an email to ads_at_frootsmag_dot_com is best, or call (+44) (0)20 8340 9651). Last date for receipt of all digital artwork - email to copy_at_frootsmag_dot_com -  is Friday 19th March.

Publication date is 22nd April. Subscribers will start to receive theirs from around 17th April.

*  On the cover, Bellowheads's frontman Jon Boden as he hits the road once again for another tour of his highly acclaimed solo project The Remnant Kings. One of many great features in the May issue, along with our unrivalled news coverage, extensive reviews and much more.

*  Festivals! Our giant April Festival issue, posting to subscribers tomorrow, once again shows the recession-beating buoyancy of the scene. The annual festival diary goes online tomorrow as well, with nearly 400 events listed this year (organisers - check your FREE entry!). Festival organisers have taken the trouble to tell us about audience research which shows that of all the mags they advertise in, fRoots is the one which produces best results for ticket sales and event awareness.


We launched a full digital edition of fRoots last summer as an economic subscription alternative and it has been drawing interest and subscribers from all over the world. See a full free-view demo version of a digital back issue via our web site front page .

* All adverts that appear in the print edition of fRoots are carried in identical form in the digital edition AT NO EXTRA COST, including working web links on all adverts of 1/4 page size and above

for rates & discounts, sizes, technical specs, stats etc.

See for secure subscribing on line.

And remember:

* We have maximum 28 percent crossover readership with any other music magazine. With fRoots you really do reach the long-term committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other magazine gets to.

* Don't think of fRoots as a purely UK magazine. We take you around the world - 40 percent of our readership is outside the UK. And this worldwide readership - who buy on average more than 50 CDs each a year! - is incredibly internet-wise: you don't need UK or international export distribution in order to sell to them.

*  And . . . the pound falling again can be good news for you! For non-UK advertisers our advertising and subscription rates are now effectively CHEAPER than before! And meanwhile, UK advertisers will find their prices more attractive to our many overseas readers. Go for it!

FREE NEWS LISTINGS: We list information on May events in the news section of this issue. We need it by Wednesday 24th March. Send your full press release to news_at_frootsmag_dot_com  If you have hi-res (300ppi) colour JPEGs of artists participating, send them to copy_at_frootsmag_dot_com
