The Story

Messed!Up is about passion for music! Messed!Up was founded a cold February day in another era after the editor and Ms Sis spent a night with electropunk music and a few Mexicaner at Hafenklang in Hamburg. Already from the start Messed!Up came to be a safe haven for people with much experience of work in the music industry, people who were just tired that their boring jobs took too much time from their passion for music. The Messed!Up crew is made up of people with a wide range of entry points in the music industry: music researchers, DJ’s, photographers, concert organizers, videographers and other skills and talents that taken together constitute the creative melting pot of the magazine.

We are an independent online music magazine with a focus on a wide range of music genres. In fact, we don’t exclude any music genre at all – a good tune will always find its way into Messed!Up. We are international by nature, based in Hamburg, Germany, but with teams across the world, in UK cities London and Manchester, Melbourne, Australia, and Swedens’s finest city Gothenburg (and at times in Linköping). 

Messed!Up’s ambitions are to publish interviews, photo galleries, guide the reader through the wide range of festivals we attend every year, and present research on music industry developments that affect artistic work. We do not do reviews or publish newsletters; our primary interest is to cover bands and artists IRL and catch them at the venues they’re playing.
