Consumer magazine publisher IPC Media has signed a partnership deal with an Indian publisher to launch a local version of NME online and in print.
www.nme.in will contain content tailored to the Indian music scene and a dedicated Indian edition of the magazine will follow.
NME publishing director Emily Hutchins said in a release:
“NME has a strong presence in India, but with such a vibrant music scene and such passionate music lovers it would be madness not to provide the country with their own edition of the magazine and 24/7 music news online. NME in India will be tailored to India’s favourite home-grown artists as well as featuring the very best from the UK and beyond. It’s a very exciting time for the NME brand.”
