We're In RGG

"We're In Ryan's Gig Guide" is a new initiative intended to help independent bands, venues & promoters putting on original live music events at no cost.

We want to preview your gigs in both our print and online versions and in return, we want you to include our branding on your event promo material and at the gigs themselves which, we hope will increase awareness of RGG and in turn encourage more people to your events.

How it works...

What we will do:

  1. Publish a full page editorial feature for you in our physical magazine, using the information & images you supply.
  2. Publish the editorial feature on our website and via our social media profiles.
  3. Provide you with free RGG promotional materials (issues, posters, flyers, stickers etc.)

What we expect you to do:

  1. Provide comprehensive information about the gig(s) you want us to include e.g. dates, venues, line-ups, band biogs & photos so we can produce a preview. Alternatively, you can write the preview yourself. Note: Info & images must be sent to us by the relevant copy deadline, specified here.
  2. Use the "We're In Ryan's Gig Guide" branding on your promotional material (both print & online)
  3. Put free RGG copies/promotional materials (posters, flyers, stickers etc.) out at your gigs

If all that sounds like a good deal, click the link below, complete the form and we'll get back to you asap!
