They consume! Like all hard core music fans, fRoots readers are still buying an average of 42 CDs a year, and they're buying nearly 120 paid-for downloads on top of that.

They respond! 95% of fRoots readers buy CDs and 72% go to live events as a result of reading about them in fRoots.

They're everywhere! 70% do their main buying online, and 40% are outside the UK. There are no barriers to directly reaching them from and to everywhere! If you're an overseas label, you don't need a UK distributor.

We've got them! The maximum readership cross-over with any other music publication is still only 29%. With fRoots you reach the long-term committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other magazine gets to.




More digital subscribers than UK Vogue (according to UK Press Gazette figures)!


? No extra cost. All adverts are carried in identical form in our digital edition with free web links.
