Bass is a culture insight magazine. Its main mission is to serve as a quick guide to largest European music festivals. Apart from this Bass provides insights into to the festival culture, multi page features of the biggest and most popular festivals, and showcases interviews with some of the worlds biggest performers.
The magazine is designed to be portable, thus its size is set to A6. It is something a user can carry in his pocket and quickly find whatever he is looking for. With this in mind, the layout of the magazine was heavily inspired by a traditional TV guide. As a monthly issue, each week is given its own section of the magazine, and each section has its own multi-page main article. Smaller festivals are separated into columns and the biggest ones get a large feature, to reflect their reputation and magnitude.
