Advertising and partnerships

DIY Music is the publisher of multi channel DIY Magazine

DIY music magazine is the gateway to advertise to 1m+ music fans. Founded in 2002, and launching our first print edition in 2011, DIY‘s editorial team has spent the best part of this century digging deep into the best new music the UK and beyond has to offer. With everyone from breaking artists to bona fide legends gracing the cover over the years, we’ve flown around the world with The 1975, given Wolf Alice such an iconic gold glitter shoot they started selling it as merch, travelled to Nashville for an exclusive with Paramore and Jack White, and even sat down with a Beatle!

  2. Niche Exposure: DIY Magazine is known for its coverage of independent and DIY (Do It Yourself) music culture. Advertising with DIY can provide niche exposure to a dedicated tastemaker audience.
  3. Support for Emerging Talent: If your brand values and supports independent and emerging talent, advertising in a magazine that champions these artists can enhance your brand image and aligns your business with the values of the DIY community.
