Subject: fRoots June issue - copy date imminent!


Advertising in the


Issue 348 of the  leading folk, roots and world music magazine!




COPY DATE ALERT: Tuesday 17th April

? To book space: email - ads_at_frootsmag_dot_com

Publication date: 24th May. Reaches UK subscribers from around 18th May.


? We're having an English summer! For the next three issues, published around our 33rd anniversary, we're celebrating three icons of English folk, starting this month with a cover feature on the mighty Oysterband. Then it's Shirley Collins in July and Nic Jones for the Aug/Sept double. But inside each issue, of course, our continual wide world music coverage.


? Join the celebrations with a series of 3 adverts. Not only gain an extra 10% discount but avoid the surcharge on rates for the big Aug/Sept double issue (as usual with a free album, and sold at major summer festivals).

? 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.
