The Journal of Music is an online music magazine published in Ireland. We publish news, reviews and opinion and also have a popular platform for event and opportunity listings. Established in 2000 as a bimonthly print publication, the Journal of Music published 60 issues before moving fully online. In 2010, it won the Utne Independent Press Award for Arts Coverage. It is regarded today as a leading publication for music journalism and criticism and publishes in-depth coverage of a range of genres, including traditional and folk, classical and contemporary, improvised and popular music, and opera.
