    l Kerrang! has over 30 years of heritage and is the biggest music weekly in the world.

    l Kerrang! reaches more young readers than any other music magazine. Having a younger profile is a big advantage as traditionally this age group is elusive (and expensive) to reach. As well as music releases this makes Kerrang! perfect for advertisers around film, games, mobile technology and government messages.

    l Kerrang! is the original multimedia platform boasting magazine, online, radio, K! Awards, K! Tour, and K! podcasts.

    l Kerrang! loves music, especially rock. Kerrang! is considered by its readers to be an integral part of the scene rather than just a commentator.

    l Kerrang! readers are heavy spending consumers: 25% more per month on cosmetics/toiletries then national average, 16% more on clothing, 8% more on footwear and 38% more on gaming accessories

    Pete, 25, lives and breathes rock music. It informs his choice of friends, his hobbies, leisure time, attitudes, fashion sense and lifestyle.

    Above all he is fanatical about THEIR music and he is proud to be a part of the scene. When he is not listening to music or watching music TV, he is a high

    consumer of all forms of technology. Pete is hugely passionate about everything he does whether it is going to Gigs, playing video games, planning holidays, going

    shopping with friends or going to the cinema.

    He is plugged in, sharp, has a strong moral code and rejoices in his individuality. He is a fashion trend setter in his peer group but he is heavily influenced by musical

    icons and scenes. Like the bands he supports he is extremely loyal to the brands he trusts. The way he looks and the clothes he wears is integral to communicating his

    identity to the world.

    Case studies




    dont be part of the silentgeneration! I F SOMEONE told you to shut up, you wouldnt be impressed. Neither would you be stoked if someone told you your opinion didnt count so you should keep it to yourself. Would you feel the same if someone stopped you from voting in the next general election in XX, 2010?

    If youre 18 or over, dont give away your right to voice your opinion on whats happening in the country you live in make sure you make your voice heard by registering to vote.

    Yeah, we know, when it comes to stuff like politics, things seem complicated. Perhaps things have stopped you registering and voting before or are putting you off from registering this time; thoughts like its difficult, its a hassle, itll take too much time to fill in a complicated form, or I dont know how to register. But, honestly, registering to vote couldnt be simpler. And itll only take you three minutes!

    All you need to do is fill in a simple and short registration form its as easy as filling in your name, address, and a few other details.

    Fill one in online by visiting or you can get

    one sent to you in the post by calling 0800 3280 280. Straightforward, right?

    And if youre worrying that registering to vote isnt cool because none of your mates are bothered about doing it, or perhaps that your vote wont make any difference, then dont.

    Voting gives you a say on important issues that affect you from roads and recycling in your area, to education and climate change. You might think you dont want to vote now, but if an issue comes up that you want to have your say on, if youre on the register you can then vote on it. Remember, registering to vote doesnt mean you have to, it just means you can if you want to.

    In the United States, stars like Green Days Billie Joe Armstrong and Fall Out Boy have encouraged young people to seize the power of the youth vote, so why not follow their lead and inspire your mates to get involved too, because their vote just like yours really does count. If you have an opinion and have a voice, remember the only way for you to have your say is by registering to vote! Visit right now!

    Optional extra: Free your music with powerful stereo sound.


    Therere not many things that you can do in three minutes let alone worthwhile things but voting is one of them! Seriously, its really, really easy to register to vote you can be well on your way to being registered to vote in less time than it takes to read this page! Or in less time than it takes to listen to Paramores new single The Only Exception (which, fact fans, would take you four minutes and 27 seconds!) Or in less time than it takes to beat the World Record for competitive eating 37

    hotdogs in 12 minutes... So what are you waiting for? All you need to do is fill in a simple and short registration form that includes your name, address, and a few other details. Fill one in online by visiting Then you just need to print the form, sign it, and send it to your local electoral registration office (you can get their address on this site too).

    It Only takes 3 MInutes! Have your say by registering online

    The approachKerrang as part of a cross media campaign were briefed to deliver a creative execution

    designed to encourage young people to register to vote and communicate the ease of the voting registration process in the run up to the 2010 general election.

    The IdeaA 5 week multi media campaign that identifies with the core 17-24 audience and

    encourage them to register to vote. It will demonstrate that their voice counts and that if they dont register they wont be able to have their say. Ultimately we will drive potential voters to register their vote at or by calling.

    Bauer's range of brands offered a great opportunity to reach our target audiences - particularly young people - with a tailored and relevant message

    in the right environment. We were really impressed with the team's creativity, flexibility and excellent project management. I have no doubt that the

    campaign will help many young people register to vote.
