What is included in a subscription?

We offer three types of subscriptions: print only, digital only or premium (includes print and digital). Each subscription is designed to fit how you prefer to consume our content. Visit for complete details of what is included in each package.

I’m interested in finding out more about Music Week corporate or institutional subscriptions.

This package is tailored for each company or academic institution. The key advantage of a corporate subscription is that they are bespoke, meaning we can offer either a digital only solution or incorporate print depending on how your team prefers to consume our content. The number of users is up to you – the more you add, the lower the cost per user becomes.

A corporate subscription will also streamline your purchasing process by providing one bill for all your users, which will lead to lower administrative costs for your company.

Please email us at for more information.
