About Schmutz

Schmutz is an online and in-print publication created for the live music scene in Berlin. Our publication features a comprehensive concert calendarnew releasesplaylists, and festival guides. Our city has a vibrant music scene, but it can be difficult to access – particularly for newcomers. Our ethos has two overlapping tenants: to make finding good music effortless and to support artists by filling out their venues.

Why are we asking you for money?

Shocker: there is very little money to be made in the free magazine business. We didn't start this project with many expectations, yet miraculously it has grown into something that takes up most of our time and has many appreciators.

Most publications like ours rely heavily on advertising to survive. While we also utilize this, we prefer to keep it to a minimum. We're not salespeople nor promoters. We're just music nerds who want to share our passion. We're intent on paying our writers, artists, printers, and collaborators fair wages, preferably without selling ad space to cringy companies.
