Festivals!  Our giant festival issue, about to post to subscribers, is our biggest for many years, showing the continuing buoyancy of the scene in spite of the economic climate. Continue keeping your event in the forefront of peoples' minds in the lead up to this year's season.

? Labels! Artists! The BBC and mainstream press are cutting back even more on folk, roots and world music coverage. fRoots is more than ever the main focal point and buzz creator in our community.


Physical is best! Information in print form carries more clout and is kept and re-read. 


For rates, technical specs and stats see:




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.
