The quarterly magazine will feature engaging and informative exclusive-to-print content related to every aspect of music festivals — from travel and food to fashion, art, and, of course, music. FestWorld Magazine will be available at airports and music festivals across the globe.
One hundred fifty million music fans attend at least three or four music festivals per year. FestWorld Magazine will be geared towards these superfans, providing seasoned festival-goers with an honest account of the festival experience. It will educate all generations about the vast number of music festivals that align with their music taste and general interests.
“If you want to see humanity at its best, attend a music festival. A print magazine fits right into the festival ethos, which is rooted in travel, adventure, and new friendships,” said founder Scotty Moore.
Moore, an entrepreneur with over 20 years of print and digital media advertising experience, is the founder FestPop.com, the first website dedicated to music festival discovery and a full service travel travel booking platform.
Each issue of the magazine will be 136+ pages, with 38 pages of advertising, have a guaranteed circulation of 350,000, and a $5.99 cover price. Each FestWorld issue will feature eight key editorial anchors:
Music Festival Reviews: Capture the Community | Culture | Vibe
Music Festival Travel Guides
Music Festival Artist Interviews
Music Festival Producer Interviews
Music Festival Fashion
Music Festival Art
Music Festival Food
Music Festival Gear/Essentials
One edition of FestWorld Magazine might feature reviews of festivals across three continents, an interview with the founder of an iconic music festival, and a photo spread of culinary feasts at festivals around the world.
Uniquely, FestWorld Magazine will not have a digital or iPad version. The only way to access FestWorld Magazine content is by subscribing, buying an issue at a newsstand, or obtaining the magazine at a music festival.
“It makes sense to have a magazine dedicated to the festival culture that has become such a part of so many lives,” said Kevin Lyman, founder of Warped Tour and FestWorld partner organization Full Energy, No Drugs (FEND).
With FestWorld Magazine, Moore and his team of magazine industry heavyweights aims to make a difference. He has created the FestWorld Foundation, which is dedicated to combating the opioid epidemic. Opioid addiction and misuse is devastating families and communities and according to the CDC, on average 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. The mission of the foundation is to serve communities on ground level by supporting treatment and recovery response efforts while simultaneously contributing to research and education. The FestWorld Foundation will support the efforts of FEND and National Opioid Action Coalition (NOAC), a WPP, iHeartMedia, and Fors Marsh Group initiative that complements existing state and federal government efforts to help drive measurable results in prevention, treatment and/or recovery for communities and individuals affected by the opioid crisis.
Alex Cameron, a co-founding member of NOAC.org on behalf of iHeartMedia stated, “We are thrilled that our work to date is inspiring meaningful action. Scotty was in the audience at our Advertising Week NY panel bringing together voices across public, private and pop culture sectors. FestWorld Magazine has responded to our call with not only a commitment to shining a brighter light on the opioid crisis, but by creating a foundation to provide resources to organizations supporting reducing the stigma around the issue, as well as improving prevention, treatment and recovery efforts. We look forward to partnering with FestWorld Magazine to bring impactful programs across the festival landscape and leverage pop culture to make a difference in fighting this epidemic.”
