Music mag sales going down

Music mag sales are going down across a variety of well-known titles.
Great deals on musical instruments
Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) data has come out, showing how well magazines – including some music titles – are doing, sales-wise.

Some magazines that many music instrument fans will no doubt have heard of, and may also read, have unfortunately been the subject of falling sales figures.

Mojo, for example, had a 2.4 per cent drop in sales when the first half of this year is held up against the first half of 2011. Kerrang, meanwhile, faced a 6.6 per cent slip when the same comparison was used. And there was a 17.6 per cent fall for NME.

Meanwhile, there was a 19.7 per cent slip for the well known magazine Q.

All of these magazines faced less substantial sales drops when the first half of this year was compared to the second half of last – other than Mojo, which showed a slightly larger drop on this measure (2.7 per cent) than it did on a yearly basis.

The most recent edition of Q magazine is in stores now and features the Country House and Park Life band Blur on the cover.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801431506-ADNFCR Posted on 17 Aug 2012 16:40 to category : Music News
