Thanks to our Supporters, we make a magazine on our own terms: no investors, no algorithms, no parent companies.

As a result of the pandemic, we had to remodel our entire business to ensure our survival, and Supporters sat at the very heart of that mission. Your support pays for our team and our global community of writers and creatives who help us promote the artists we want in our own way. You’ll be shaping our future as a Supporter-powered platform, and we promise to bring you even closer to the music.

We want Crack to be accessible to everyone. Students and NHS workers can subscribe at a discounted rate. If you can’t afford £5 a month, get in touch and we’ll sort you out.


When is Crack Magazine delivered?

One Magazine will be delivered to your address every month. The magazine will arrive in the first two weeks of the month for UK residents and around the third week for International addresses.

I’m in the USA - what location shall I choose?

Rest of the World (ROW). This option covers shipping to anywhere outside of the UK or Europe.

Can I buy one magazine?

You can purchase the current issue and any remaining previous issues on our online shop. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

I’ve moved - how can I update my shipping address?

Update your shipping address here!

What is the difference between folded and unfolded?

Crack Magazine will either be delivered to you folded (with care!) and mailed through your letterbox in 100% compostable packaging. Better for the planet and your pocket.

OR mailed flat in hard-backed cardboard. For the collectors. Please note that this is a parcel delivery due to the size.

You can swap between folded and unfolded magazines in your account.

Can I buy a gift subscription?

To gift a print subscription, add the recipient’s shipping details at billing! De-select ‘Ship to my billing address’, and add their address info here. Email us at for any assistance.

What digital benefits do I get?

You’ll get immediate access to the Supporter Hub – our archive of digital magazines. Each month, you’ll get a new digital magazine, Supporter-only mailers from Crack staff and guest curators, exclusive screenings, talks, exclusive content, and more. You’ll be the first to receive guest list invites to our events, music-related discounts, offers, giveaways, and Supporter exclusive merch. Plus you’ll be keeping Crack independent. Thank you! 

How do I cancel my membership?

You can cancel your membership at any time in your account. Your Supporter Hub access will remain and magazines will be delivered until the end of your pre-paid term.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

You can cancel your subscription at any time in your account. If you choose to cancel, in accordance with our Terms of Service we can’t refund a payment after it’s been processed.

Am I able to make a one-off donation?
