FRONT COVER Here are some ways in which my magazine front cover appeals to my target audience
Free gifts inside the magazine such as a poster special which would attract people as this has been highly effective for a magazine like Kerrang!
I called the magazine Legends Of Rock as this would appeal to people who like rock music.
I made sure the people on the front cover were people that the target audience would aspire to be like maybe.
I also included a coverline of all new interviews as the target audience would be heavily into there music and therefore this would appeal to them as they know what is happening with there favourite artists.- Also on the ticker and banner I made sure that I put bands that my target audience would like.- The star shape on the 10 best albums of the year would draw peoples attention.- The posters of certain bands would appeal to them as they have been taken mainly from live performances which would appeal to people
CONTENTS PAGE Ways in which my contents page would appeal to my target audience are as follows.

DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD
On my double page spread I included information about the bands latest tour and information about their upcoming album which people who buy this magazine would definitely want to read about.
I included the band fact file part of the magazine to give people interesting information and background about the band if they hadn’t of heard of them before
I also included two live pictures of the band playing to put the focus on live music and obviously show people that this band is a serious touring band.
