Songlines is a British-based magazine launched in 1999 that covers music from traditional and popular to contemporary and fusion, featuring artists from around the globe.

Songlines is published 10 times a year and contains CD reviews, artist interviews, guides to particular world music traditions, concert and festival listings and travel stories. Every issue comes with an accompanying compilation CD featuring sample tracks from 10 of the best new releases reviewed in that issue and five additional tracks chosen by a celebrity. A podcast containing highlights of each issue is available to download through iTunes or through the Songlines website.

The magazine is edited by Simon Broughton, co-editor of The Rough Guide to World Music.

The name was chosen based on the aboriginal mythological concept of songlines.


In 2008 Songlines was expanded to include Songlines Music Travel, a music tourism service offering excursions to renowned world music locations and festivals.

In 2009 Songlines launched Songlines Digital, an online subscription version of the magazine.

Mark Allen Group acquired Songlines in 2015.[1]
