The July isssue of fRoots, fR313, will be our 30th ANNIVERSARY ISSUE, celebrating every single issue published on time in an unbroken schedule since 1979! Musical fashions, governments, recessions, plagues, bandwagons and generations have all come and gone, but fRoots has consistently supported the best folk, roots and world music down all those years. Be part of saluting our achievement and the strength of the music!

"I doubt if the huge audience that now exists for world and roots music would be there if it weren't for fRoots." Joe Boyd


Tueday 12th May: final booking deadline (an email to ads_at_frootsmag_dot_com is best), and target date for receipt of all adverts.

Publication date is 18th June Subscribers will start to receive theirs from around 13th June.


Not only is this a great issue to have a presence in anyway, there is a special 20% discounted rate for those of you kind enough to want to place congratulatory adverts to mark our achievement of longevity!

Also be alerted that the the issue after that is our big Aug/Sept double issue with another of our ultra-collectable fRoots CDs, on sale at all the key summer festivals like WOMAD (for which we are media sponsor), Cambridge, Sidmouth, Towersey etc. Our 10% short series discount that normally requires booking for 3 issues will apply to just these two special issues booked together!

for rates & discounts, sizes, technical specs, stats etc.

And remember these important points about fRoots:

* We take you around the world - 40 percent of our readership is outside the UK. And this worldwide readership - who buy on average more than 50 CDs each a year! - is incredibly internet-wise: you don't need UK or international export distribution in order to sell to them.

* We have maximum 28 percent crossover readership with any other music magazine. With fRoots you really do reach the committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other magazine gets to.

FREE NEWS LISTINGS: We list information on July events in the news section of this issue. We need it by Wednesday 20th May. Send your full press release to news_at_frootsmag_dot_com  If you have hi-res (300ppi) colour JPEGs of artists participating, send them to copy_at_frootsmag_dot_com
