The Live Guide, a pocket-size music guide distributed across Manchester, helps its readers plan their month ahead with unrivalled live music listings. There’s also local music news, club night info, interviews, insights from industry insiders, tip-off s about fresh-faced newcomers, plus sacks of wicked-cool content which our dedicated readers avidly seek out each month.

Since its launch, the magazine has attracted notable contributors from the music industry including The Charlatans frontman and record label owner Tim Burgess, musician and BBC/Radio X DJ Clint Boon and musician and journalist John Robb.

What makes The Live Guide different, is that our content is solely focused on the live music scene in Manchester and our extensive distribution network places the printed guides in the hands of giggoers at live shows, giving our advertisers exposure to their target market at key locations across the city.

We offer our advertising services to local business and brands that our readers will relate to, ensuring our advertisers receive a return on their marketing spend with us. These include the music industry, bars and restaurants, fashion labels, drinks brands, retail stores, travel, youth and lifestyle brands.

We are proud to work with a diverse range of advertisers from industry leaders to underground collectives, which includes SJM Concerts, Kilimanjaro Live, Crosstown Concerts, Academy Music Group, See Tickets, Kendal Calling, The Warehouse Project, Bluedot, Parklife, Off The Record and Hatter Hostel to name but a very few.
