The MagazineOur magazine (32 pages, many in colour, A5) will not only keep you up to date with all the latest news, but it will give even the most devoted fans new insights, thanks to exclusive interviews with the people that worked with ABBA back in the days, stories about records and memorabilia for both beginners and advanced collectors, a Q&A section and specials about different events in the careers of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. This is also the place to look for competitions where you can win things that are autographed by all four members, get tickets to shows, get the latest Fan Club Shop catalogue and much more. We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers. Every now and then, there is a special gift with the magazine, like the sought-after CDs that Polar made for us. We are proud to say that several of the people in the inner circle around ABBA have asked for a subscription and, of course, the ABBA members themselves get their own copies.
The magazine is published four times a year, very occasionally with extra newsletters in between. The magazine is published in English. A translation in French is available on request.
Magazine 135 is published on the 1st June
This issue contains some great, extensive interviews with Anders Hanser, Greg Field and Gered Mankowitz.
We have reports on the opening of the Post ABBA exhibition at the ABBA Museum in Stockholm, our Fan Club Weekend with a Q&A session with Görel Hanser and Mia Segolsson as well as Chess in London.
As always, we have found fabulous pictures for you and, of course, there is so much more, including our regular features – memorabilia, old releases/record companies, posters, news and our competition – the list is almost endless.
Here are the links which are mentioned in the news section and at other places in the magazine.
