Who's used it in the past?
As well as music releases, Kerrang! is perfect for film and games, and also mobile technology and government messages. Kerrang! partnered with Paco Rabanne to promote Black XS with a cross media campaign to give readers the chance to enter their bands to win a recording deal with Search & Destroy Records. This generated 500 entrants, a huge spike in Kerrang.com traffic and culminated in the final 4 bands fighting it out at a live gig at the O2.
Features / Benefits
- Kerrang! has 29 years of heritage and is the biggest music weekly
in the world. - Kerrang! is actually really young with a median age of 22. Having a younger profile is a big advantage as traditionally this age group is
elusive (and expensive) to reach. - Kerrang! readers are the heaviest music consumers purchasing over 6 albums per month on average (53% more than the national average) and 8 times more likely to spend over £200 a year on albums. The readers are also 5.5 times more likely to attend a rock gig.
