welcome to mixmag: The world’s biggest dance music and CLUBBING magazine From traditional hot-spots like London, Berlin and Ibiza, electronic music is now exploding everywhere: from South America and Eastern Europe to Las Vegas and Japan. And one brand is at the centre of it all. Mixmag is the world’s biggest dance music and clubbing magazine, (readership 190,00, ABC audited circulation 20,817), the biggest and most vital online presence and the force behind events from club

tours and huge parties in Los Angeles and Ibiza to word-ofmouth events in East London. Mixmag is the bible of the new dance music explosion. The world’s biggest brands know it. That’s why Armani teamed up with us this year for a six-month cross-media campaign, it’s why Smirnoff partnered with us to launch its amazing Sensation parties at the O2. It’s why Disney came to us to launch its Tron Legacy ‘R3configur3d’

soundtrack and it’s why Calvin Klein asked us to run a fashion shoot for it with hot young DJs and artists. The magazine is now available in print and digitally around the world through our iPad/iPhone/ Android app. With a colossal social media presence and website, Mixmag has the history, the authority and the creativity to give the right brands an authentic association with dance music and club culture.

reader profile Mixmag readers are the opinionformers and leaders in clubbing. They are the ones who make the happening music happen, and the cool products cool within their peer group. They are the first to recommend a new tune and the first on a new fashion trend. They’re at that new cool club very early, and they move on before it starts to go cold . Our demographic spans young budding bedroom DJs through to accomplished producers. They’re the best informed about top DJs and upcoming tunes, and they just have to have the latest mobile (even if their current one is less than six months old). They’re the biggest downloaders of music in the UK. The median age of a Mixmag reader is 24 (72% male, 28% female) and they tend to be urban and single. They have a high disposable income and a high propensity to spend it on: Nights out Clothes Music The latest mobile phones and MP3 players Nearly 80% do not read another music magazine, and they spend little time watching TV, especially at weekends.
