About

Happy Mag needs your help to re-launch in an all new format! In the face of every major music publication abandoning print, Happy Mag is determined to carry the torch.

Happy Mag is Australia's fastest growing online music, arts and culture publication and printed magazine. Help us keep the medium alive by playing your part in our biggest addition yet. ISSUE 10 will offer more room for quality music, art and culture content, beautiful imagery of your favourite artists and inspiring stories from the Aussie scene we all know and love.

We're proposing to upsize the mag from its current A5 zine format into a beautifully crafted perfect bound magazine (180mm x 240mm, 100 pages). This is super exciting but we also face huge production costs to make this happen. We'll be so thankful if you can pledge your support to help us reach our $10,000 goal.

On top of the usual programming, Issue 10 will also be Happy Mag's first Drug Awareness Issue. Drugs are becoming as visible as ever in our everyday lives, but there is still so much the public doesn't know. By speaking to doctors, politicians, artists and activists, Issue 10 aims to foster a safer, more conscious world when it comes to drugs.

- Your contribution will go solely to the production, manufacturing and distribution of 5,000 copies of the new mag.

- We'll be launching Issue 10 in February 2019 with a huge party featuring our favourite bands to say thanks! Event link: https://bit.ly/2zppb7H

Just over two years ago, Happy Mag launched it's very first print issue featuring Courtney Barnett on the cover with one hell of a launch party in Sydney to celebrate! Since then, we've released another 8 issues including our inaugural 2018 photo annual, which was launched at VIVID Sydney.

Happy Mag is constantly finding ways to adapt and grow our print issue with the changing media landscape. Issue 10 marks a turning point for us, and we're honoured to be part of an excited, tuned-in scene that's ready to help make it happen.

Risks and challenges

Happy Mag is comprised of a small and passionate team, keen and capable of facilitating the creative and editorial aspects of the magazine.

The immediate challenge that we face is the financial investment of producing 5,000 copies in the new size and format.

If we can fulfil our goal, we feel very confident in producing the final product on schedule, to be released in February 2019. We're incredibly excited to launch Issue 10 into the world and hope you can help us make it happen!
