Giveaway Requests

We are always happy to share things we love with our audience. From bands we support to products we think they’d enjoy, we hope to add to the music community with each post. Please get in touch via email if you’d like us to share our experience with your product, service, band, or event.

Giveaways are always welcome, as long as the prize bundle has a minimum $50 value (can be one or more items) and you are able to mail it out to the winner(s).

Our audience is mainly comprised of 15-25 year olds (60% female) who are in school or just getting started in their careers. They live for their concert schedule, new album releases, and the hope that someday MCR will reunite. They don’t always have a ton of spending money, but they’ll dish out if Twenty One Pilots does something weird and exclusive.
