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! With the magazine heading into a new decade (and with our 100th issue behind us that we celebrated in September 2020), we had to up page our year end DIY Class of 2022 edition twice due to advertiser demand.
