MORE GREAT BENEFITS WILL BE ADDED AS THE YEAR GOES ON!
For the first time, Hot Press is making its incredible 25-year-strong collection of political, literary, popular culture and music journalism available to read online. The hotpress.com archive is an ever-growing beast: it currently runs to about twice its size, as of January 2002. With new material (from both the distant past and the ever-changing present!) being constantly added, our target is to have more than 50,000 items available in the archive by next year! You can search this mine of information, curiosities and enjoyment by keyword or artist..
THE INDUSTRY CHANNEL
hotpress.com's Industry Channel gives you access to the Hot Press Music Directory, the most comprehensive collection of Irish music industry contacts availble anywhere, and the only Irish music industry resource you'll ever need.
But it gets better. In addition to the goldmine of contact information Hot Press Yearbook users have come to rely upon, the Music Directory online will also offer exciting new features to keep you educated, updated and in the know about what's going on in Ireland, both in relation to talent and in the music industry generally. This is a vital service for professionals and for fans alike.
All this for just €20 a year ... you're right, you'd be mad not to.
