Celebrating the biggest acts of the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s, RETROPOP is The Ultimate Pop Magazine fans of chart hits from across the decades!

Publishing monthly in print and daily online across its website and social media channels, the brand reaches a global monthly audience of 6 million+ users, delivering world exclusive interviews, in-depth features, advance reviews of the latest releases and plenty more.

Launched as an online blog in April 2020, RETROPOP quickly attracted a global audience and the attention of key industry players, leading to interview offers with the biggest names in music, from Gary Numan and Bonnie Tyler, to Steps, Saint Etienne and Gabrielle.

In March 2022, RETROPOP was launched as a print magazine on newsstands across the UK and has continued to grow year-on-year, with 2023 seeing a 14.25% increase in newsstands sales (bucking industry trends) and a huge 221.95% increase in subscribers.

Approaching its 30th print edition, RETROPOP has so-far been bootstrapped with personal investment from Founder & Editor Connor Gotto, who alongside the title launched IRRESISTIBLE - a cross-platform media and publishing company, which is currently raising a seed round of £375,000 on an initial £2.1Mn valuation.

With only limited funds, to date RETROPOP has risen through the ranks to become the UK's leading monthly pop music magazine and as work goes on behind the scenes to secure a strong future for the brand, it's vital that we maintain a runway to further the title.

While the fundraise is ongoing, we're raising a small tranche to push RETROPOP forward and continue to deliver the title in print and digitally, along with a daily online presence across website and social media. 

This includes onboarding a new staff writer to work across platforms and enhance our output, increase our digital marketing efforts to reach new audiences and allow work to begin on new strategic brand collaborations
