Music outside the mainstream.

Based in the northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia, PlugInMusic.com has been focusing on up-and-coming and established musicians and bands you may never have heard of (and probably some you have) since 2001. Our goal is to find a happy medium between the musicians and the music fans, serving both at the same time. Through reviews, interviews, contests and other features, musicians can find new fans and fans can find new musicians.

Consider making us the place to come to when you're looking for new music.

Policy Statement - January 17, 2011

After ten years of covering music that wasn't always getting coverage elsewhere, PlugInMusic.com is scaling back. You'll still be able to keep up on news, free music and contests, as well as the occasional feature, interview and review -- but the latter will be much less frequent. We will no longer accept physical submissions for reviews. But when we do offer a feature, interview or review, it'll be covering something really special we think you should check out. Thanks for all your support and we hope you'll keep reading.


Help wanted! We're currently looking for fun-loving, hard-working music fans to join our team. Please drop a line for further details.
