The Wire

The world's greatest print and online music magazine. Independent since 1982


Continuing our 400th issue celebrations with an exclusive Bleep x Wire T-shirt, Diamanda Galás performance and more

In celebration of 400 issues of The Wire, we've teamed up with Bleep to design a limited edition T-shirt, on sale now

This month we continue our 400th issue celebrations by hooking up with more Wire-friendly promoters, venues and festivals to co-present a further series of Wire 400 live shows. See the Wire 400 listing on our website for full details of the Blurred Edges, Art Of Improvisers, Saturnalia and Terraforma festivals, as well as shows with Melt-Banana, Zu, Diamanda Galás, Aki Onda, and the High Focus label.

Our series of Wire 400 radio specials will run throughout June. Looking back on the magazine’s history and the music we’ve covered in that time, they'll be presented by The Wire’s staff on London arts radio station Resonance 104.4 FM during our weekly Adventures In Sound And Music slot – every Thursday 9–10:30pm (GMT), 104.4 FM for Londoners, or stream elsewhere.

We've also teamed up with Warp records' sister company Bleep on a special Bleep x Wire 400 T-shirt. It's grey with black and white text and comes in sizes small, medium, large and extra large. Please note it’s limited edition so it won’t be around forever. Buy one via
