The editor and publisher of Bearded magazine, Gareth Main, will be doing a talk for CMCI at King’s College London on the topic ‘Music Magazines, and How To Start One Up: The Importance of Tastemakers in a Free Digital Music Universe’.

The talk will take place at 4pm on Tuesday 31 March, in Room K3.11, King’s Building, Strand Campus, King’s College London. All are welcome.

Bearded is a magazine specialising in independent popular music, and is available at newsagents across the UK. Gareth Main will speak about the uses and importance of media in promoting artists in a culture where almost any kind of music can be obtained for free. Can the media — especially magazines — still act as tastemakers in this environment? How do great musical artists with limited financial resources become known in the internet age?
