Who We Are (STAFF) + Contact Us!

What are we? HIGHLIGHT MAGAZINE is a FREE monthly online based magazine that’s released on the first Monday of every month.

Our mission? It’s simple. We don’t want to be another online tabloid in your scene. HIGHLIGHT MAGAZINE acknowledges that the music industry is one crazy place. It’s full of struggles and passion. We aim to ‘HIGHLIGHT’ artists, their struggles and how they’ve overcome them. We aim to HIGHLIGHT every genre of music and it’s strengths. We aim to HIGHLIGHT music as the community that it is and always has been. We stand for you and the artists who you love. We are HIGHLIGHT MAGAZINE and we stand for positivity.
