About Subba Media

We give fans a voice. Just as TripAdvisor transformed hospitality, Subba Media delivers a platform for honest fan reviews of music & festivals. We started by writing passionately about local music that wasn’t accurately portrayed by the media. Fans now review more than 150 global festivals and 3,000 artists per year, which is continuing to grow.

Artists connect with fans. Venues get real feedback. Fans discover new artists and festivals.

Why does this matter?

Because we live in a review-based society. Hate your drive home? 2 stars on Uber. Love your dinner? Share on Google Reviews. Went to a killer show?...where can you share that?

There’s a gap the music and media industries have failed to keep up with. While there are many editorially-led reviews sites, none offer fans the opportunity to review music experiences themselves. The gap is most apparent for the thousands of up-and-coming artists performing in smaller venues in cities all around the world. We created Subba-Cultcha.com to provide this platform.

With live music attendance at a record high, we wanted to create a place where fans can share their experiences with other fans.

Where did it all start?

Our initial vision for Subba Media was small, but heartfelt: build a platform that enabled fans to have a voice. And so it began, with die-hard music fans: just a handful of us in London writing passionately about the local artists and venues we loved, but which we felt were under-represented - or worse, MISREPRESENTED!

As more and more fans started submitting reviews, the dream has now grown. Our aim is to grow Subba Media to provide the biggest music and festival fan-led platform in the world and to become the #1 source of fan-generated reviews globally.
