Why be a member?
Well, why just read Ireland's coolest (and yet, let's face it, sometimes hottest) music & culture magazine, when you can avail of all sorts of other special features here on the web as well? Such as...
The now infamous hotpress.com messageboards are a treat within a treat. Over the last 9 months the burgeoning messageboard crew has pondered long and hard on some of the crucial - and some of the not so crucial! - issues of the day (and, if you don't mind, the night too). The thousands upon thousands of posts from members of hotpress.com have been variously learned, trivial, entertaining, heart breaking, hilarious and always really real. This is a living, breathing, fascinating community. Reach out and touch them. They don't always bite back!
Over the last 9 months, members of hotpress.com have won 2 wonderful trips to foreign climes, backstage VIP access at 6 of the major gigs and events in the Irish music calendar, and rakes and rakes more desirable goodies! Over the coming months, there will LOTS of other great competitions, EXCLUSIVE to subscribers - the kind of thing you'd kick yourself to have missed. We promise!
