UGLY PLANET is a new music culture magazine dedicated to documenting artists who support innovation, diversity, equality, justice and social introspection.  UGLY PLANET is glossy, clean and well designed, yet political, multi-ethnic, multi-genre and free!  UGLY PLANET targets politically and culturally aware music lovers  between the ages of 17-28. 

When you advertise in UGLY PLANET, people will see your ad and will associate you with our cause: the hunger and thirst for relevant music. And the idea that not all popular music is about bullshit consumerism. And that some artists still care about making a difference. It's not just Punk Rock or Hip-Hop or Metal or Folk... black or white, but all together trying to make this world more livable. Our readers are not the average music listener. They are intellingent, eclectic and in search of new and inovative material.

All advertising revenue goes right into printing and shipping. Our low rates are based on what it actually costs to make each issue. The total cost of printing and shipping divided by the amount of ad pages.
