About

Hello wonderful BMA fans and long time supporters!

Firstly, a huge thank you for visiting our Patreon page and keeping up-to-date with what's new in our world.

While so much information is easily accessible at one's fingertips in the digital age, there's still nothing quite like picking up a good ol' fashioned print copy of BMA to discover the capital's best music, exhibitions, festivals and touring acts.

Since 1992, BMA Magazine has been distributed every fortnight to over 400 locations throughout the ACT and surrounding NSW. Main distribution points have included; tertiary campuses, music and fashion retailers, cafes, nightclubs, hotels, pubs, salons, supermarkets, fresh-food markets, petrol stations, galleries, theatres, cinemas and more.

On average, over 25,500 readers pick up BMA! And 8,000+ view it from our website bmamag.com every fortnight. BMA has been in existence for 28 years. This means our core demographic of 14–35, is joined by a strong long-time following from those aged 35 and up. 

Our long standing status and on-going commitment to the Canberra arts scene has led us to be recognised as Canberra' #1 Entertainment Guide.

So, who are we? BMA is owned, published and edited by Allan Sko who has been a vital and integral part of Canberra's arts and music scene for many years. He is passionate about all things creative and wants to keep BMA alive and thriving well into the future. There's also Ruth O'Brien who is currently in charge of social media and general administration for the running of the mag. Together, Allan and Ruth have a combined 30+ years of experience working in the Canberra arts and music scenes.

Many Canberrans have worked for or with BMA over the years and it would not be where it is today without recognising the many, many people who have contributed to its success.

BMA exists to support and promote Canberra's wonderful community and provide up-to-date information on all the latest things happening in and around our beautiful city. And, like the best things in life, BMA is free, and accessible to all.
