Big Island Music Magazine would like to hear from you!
Need to get in touch? Got something to pitch? Here’s how to do it…
Want to write about music?
We are actively looking for new recruits to help us interview local musicians, write concert recaps, and cover the best music found on the Big Island. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the site looking to give music writing a shot, or a long-time music writer looking for a new opportunity, we’d love to hear from you. If you think you’d want to help out, we can offer the occasional free ticket or two for shows and publication on our popular music site.
Got a show, band, or new release you’re trying to promote?
You can use the form below to submit press releases and entertainment info about events that happen on Hawaii Island.
Press releases: Please provide the following information: Name of group or artist, short bio, links to audio, photos, video, or EPK. Here are some tips on how to write a music press release, and prepare talking points for an interview.
Upcoming shows: Be sure to include the basics: title of the event, venue location, date and showtime, cost, online links, and ticket purchase info. Please submit content at least two (2) weeks in advance of the event.
New music releases: Let us know about the release at least two weeks in advance of the public release date. Please include cover art, band photo, info about the recording, and links where it can be purchased, downloaded, or streamed. Don’t forget your social media links. Typically, these releases run about 500-600 words. While Big Island Music Magazine makes every effort to accommodate all submissions, article publication is not guaranteed, and submissions are subject to editing for space and content. We only cover stories that are related to the Big Island’s music scene and musicians.
