Who Is Happy Media?

Happy Media's network directly connects with thousands of arts and music lovers aged between 18-35 every single day.

Publishers and Creators

From brand partnership events to all ages gigs and workshops, Happy and their news team speaks the language our audience trusts and understands.

Bespoke Partner Events

With a proven track record of over-capacity shows and one-off activations, an event partnering with Happy Media plugs you directly into the artists, influencers and culture we've cultivated over a number of years. Having filled venues all across Sydney, we've firmly established ourselves as live music tastemakers, consistently delivering some of Australia's most talked-about lineups.

Engineering the Sound

Every morning Happy reports the news our audience wants to hear, engaging thousands of people each day. In a two-to-three minute segment streamed live to Facebook, Happy Mag's daily news offers hyper-consistent coverage upon one of our most recognised and most viewed channels. From the day's best new music releases, to big issues that impact culture more broadly, Happy's daily news segment is curated carefully to peak interest in our online audience.

An Original Happy Media TV Show

Music Life is Happy Mag's weekly online television show. With interviews, news bulletins, long-form video features, and live performances, Music Life brings together all of Happy's best multimedia content into one program. Hosted by Happy staff, the show is a cohesive series of segments that dig deep into big topics, shine a light on emerging artists, and welcome guests from across the music industry.

Content Verticals

Happy Mag's annual NZ Week is an entire week of online content dedicated to New Zealand’s incredible catalogue of artists, musicians, labels, and businesses that foster and support creative communities. Already, we include NZ artists in our tastemaking processes - from opening entries to our Needle In The Hay vinyl comp to New Zealand, to regularly profiling and covering the nation’s artists - but for one week every year, New Zealand becomes our primary focus.

Complete In House Production

With a world-class recording studio and production space in our arsenal, Happy Media's in-house creative team is able to regularly publish top-quality video content that's engaging, dynamic, and highly sought after. These include our Live At Enmore studio sessions which have featured live sets from some of the country's biggest and best touring artists, our EQ video segments which take an in-depth look at some of music's greatest myths, our Happy Places video series, and much more.
