Digital Advertising | Songlines

Digital Advertising

Songlines digital advertising opportunities include banners and advertorial content on the website and our fortnightly e-newsletters. While there is some audience overlap between the website and e-newsletter audience, the majority of our digital users don’t read the printed magazine. Therefore, both mediums compliment each other, providing a large and targeted World/Folk Music audience.

Advertising on the website provides an opportunity to reach a large, international audience, with many visitors just beginning their World Music journey. This audience is particularly valuable for international tours, gigs and festivals and World Music releases with broader appeal. 

The majority of the 35,000 subscribers to the fortnightly e-newsletters have provided their email addresses at UK festivals (WOMAD, Larmer Tree, Musicport etc). This makes our e-newsletters especially powerful for UK-based festivals, gigs and tours.
