At Joyzine we’re always looking for new artists, events and releases to feature on our website and radio show and we welcome submissions from artists, labels, promoters and agencies.
Whilst our primary focus is on new and independent music, we also cover art, theatre, film, literature, comedy and events with a similar ethos of creativity, experimentation and a DIY spirit.
We have a policy of only featuring work that we enjoy or find interesting (hence Joyzine) and do not write ‘bad’ reviews as we feel that our time is better spent on covering things that excite and interest us.
Joyzine is run by a small group of passionate music & arts fans and receives hundreds of review requests every week. As such it is not always possible for us to respond to every enquiry, for which we apologise.
How to Submit Your Music
To ensure that you receive a response, please submit your request via Musosoup, which for a small fee will share your music with a whole host of blogs, online radio stations and other media outlets. Click here to get started and get £20 off your first submission (£10 rather than the usual £30)
* Full disclosure: Joyzine receives a referral fee for each new sign up, which is used to help cover the costs of running the site.
We still also accept submissions via email, which should be sent to Joyzine Editor Paul Maps: email@example.com – please note that whilst we listen to all submissions you may not get a response unless your music is featured on our website or radio show.
Where possible, please include an example of your work, whether it be an MP3, streaming audio link, a photo or scan of your artwork, a video clip or a text extract.
If you are a writer, photographer or artist who would like to join the Joyzine team, please follow this link for more information.
