Bizarre is the world’s biggest alternative culture magazine, and is produced by Blackthorn Communications on behalf of Dennis Publishing. We supply all the editorial, design, illustration and photography, taking the magazine right up to the printing stage as well as delivering digital editions.
Using content sourced from a global network of writers, photographers and agencies, Blackthorn Communications knits this together into a high-quality, design-led product that hits newsstands 13 times a year.
As well as using our industry contacts to commission and licence the best content, Blackthorn Communications has built a successful Bizarre online community via popular social media platforms to market the printed product and attract top-quality user-generated content.
Blackthorn Communications has also played a key role in taking the Bizarre brand on tour, delivering experiential marketing at summer music festivals such as Sonisphere, as well as helping to create the legendary Bizarre Ball live events that showcase the UK’s best bands and sideshow performers.
