Web Advertisements:

We are open to all web advertising opportunities that we think will be appreciated by our readers. If you have a proposal for a web ad please contact Joe Bebco.

Prime Ad Placement: $150 a month ($100 for print advertisers).

A rotating scroll of all of our prime ads is embedded within each article. Ads within the text of stories are the gold standard because people reading an article are guaranteed to look at them. Your ad will also appear on the sidebar, and in a rotating scroll at the bottom of certain static pages,  i.e. “Contact Page”, “About Page”, etc. On longer articles, your ad may appear more than once.

Sidebar Only Ads: $60 a Month ($40 for print advertisers) or $180 for Four Months ($120 for print advertisers).

They can also be negotiated for longer or shorter amounts of time as brief as a week.

Ads on the sidebar will only appear prominently to computer users, those visiting on phones and tablets must scroll past the article they are reading to see them. Roughly 50% of our visitors are on desktops or laptops. Fewer people will see your ad here which is why the sidebar rate is so much lower. Sidebar ads are well suited to items for immediate purchase by people already sitting at their computers, such as books or albums.

Festival Roundup Web Ads: $100 a Year

We understand that many traditional jazz festivals run on shoestring budgets with not much left to advertise. You can purchase a $100 yearly graphic ad to appear within the online version of The Festival Roundup, but nowhere else on the website. It can serve as a “Save the Date” for your festival during the months your festival information is not part of the Roundup. Your text listing is, as always, a free service to our readers. If you know of a multi-act event to be held in the next five months please tell us about it so we can add the information.


We started our online subscription format in August. Traffic has steadily increased every month and we expect it to continue to do so before flattening out. Here are our January numbers:
