FestWorld: The World’s First Music Festival Lifestyle Magazine to Launch March 9, 2019

FestWorld Magazine is the world’s first print magazine devoted exclusively to music festivals and music festival fans. It will launch on March 9, 2019.

About the magazine

The quarterly magazine will feature engaging and informative exclusive-to-print content related to every aspect of music festivals. In fact, it will cover topics from travel and food to fashion, art, and, of course, music. Once released, FestWorld Magazine will be available at airports and music festivals across the globe.

One hundred fifty million music fans attend between three and four music festivals per year. FestWorld Magazine will be geared towards these superfans. To accomplish this, the magazine will provide seasoned festival goers with an honest account of the festival experience. It will also educate all generations about the vast number of music festivals that align with their music tastes and general interests.

FestWorld founder Scotty Moore

Scotty Moore is an entrepreneur with more than 20 years of print and digital media advertising experience. He is also the founder FestPop. FestPop was one of the first websites dedicated to music festival discovery. The website also provideda full service travel booking platform.

FastWorld Magizine founder Scotty Moore made the following statement:

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.

Layout

Each issue of the magazine will contain 136+ pages. Of that, the magazine plans to reserve 38 pages for advertising. The magazine will also have a guaranteed circulation of 350,000 and a $5.99 cover price.

Each issue of FestWorld Magazine will feature eight key editorial anchors:

  • Music Festival Reviews: Capture the Community | Culture | Vibe
  • Festival Travel Guides
  • Artist Interviews
  • Producer Interviews
  • Music Festival Fashion
  • Festival Art
  • Music Festival Food
  • 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.

Partners

Kevin Lyman, founder of Warped Tour and FestWorld partner organization Full Energy, No Drugs (FEND) made the following statement

It makes sense to have a magazine dedicated to the festival culture that has become such a part of so many lives.

Kevin Lyman recently received Billboard‘s Humanitarian Award in November 2017 for his work with anti-opioid initiative FEND (“Full Energy, No Drugs”). Interestingly, the FEND app uses gamification to educate youth on the dangers of drugs.

FestWorld Foundation

Ultimately, with FestWorld Magazine, Moore and his team of magazine industry heavyweights aim to make a difference. To accomplish this, Moore has created the FestWorld Foundation.

The foundation is dedicated to combating the opioid epidemic. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opioid addiction and misuse devistates both families and communities. Furthermore, on average, 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. The mission of the foundation is to serve communities on the ground level. To accomplish this, the foundation will support treatment and recovery response efforts while simultaneously contributing to research and education.

The FestWorld Foundation will also support the efforts of FEND and National Opioid Action Coalition (NOAC), a WPP, iHeartMedia, and Fors Marsh Group initiative. This initiative also complements existing state and federal government efforts. Ultimately, it will also help drive measurable results in prevention, treatment and/or recovery for communities and individuals affected by the opioid crisis.

With this in mind, two dollars from every FestWorld Magazine Annual Subscription ($12) goes towards helping end the opioid epidemic.

Alex Cameron, a co-founding member of NOAC on behalf of iHeartMedia made the following statement:

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
