Publication Plan


Positioning Statement

  • The hottest music by the hottest indie bands for the hottest fans!

Frequency of publication

  • Weekly


  • £2.00


  • Newsagents and supermarkets; Indie fashion shops; Small gigs


  • My magazine gives dedicated indie fans the music updates they need to keep up to date in the music world. The infomation that they crave for just after they read just one issue, they cant wait for the next. It is from a very own fans perpective so there will be agreements and disagreements with whats written.


  • The style of my music magazine is rather informal with even a few articles written by artists themselves. There is no beating around the bush it goes stright to the music that everyone wants to hear. It will use short paragraphs and some slang and quotations.
