Subject: fRoots July issue - copy date imminent!
The deadline is approaching for the
JULY 2012 fROOTS
Issue 349 of the leading folk, roots and world music magazine!
FINAL DEADLINE ALERT: Friday 18th May
? If you didn't already do so, book space now! : email - ads_at_frootsmag_dot_com
? Publication date: 21st June. Reaches UK subscribers from around 16th June.
? We're having an English summer! For the three issues published around our 33rd anniversary, we're celebrating three icons of English folk, continuing this month with a cover feature on the legendary Shirley Collins - and then Nic Jones for the Aug/Sept double. But inside each issue, of course, our continual wide world music coverage.
? This one's our 33rd Anniversary issue, and next month is our 350th issue! We keep breaking all these records because (sounds trumpet!) we're still the best there is. You've always read about it first in fRoots, your essential folk, roots and world music guide - 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.

FACTS FROM OUR LATEST READERSHIP SURVEY
? 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.
THE DIGITAL EDITION
? 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.
