The Magazine

Our 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 We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers.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 No. 158

Magazine 158 is published on the 4th March

With a set of anniversaries approaching, we look back fifty years to ABBA's preparations for Eurovision, including a focus on the photo shoot for the Waterloo album cover and how ABBA needed to conquer Swedish hearts at Melodifestivalen before they could meet their European audience. We also reflect on 25 years of Mamma Mia! in London's West End. There is an interesting interview with Cindy Alter from South African band Clout, while one ABBA fan tells us how he made his career in London's Theatreland and got to work alongside his idols. Naturally, we have all our other regular features and competition too.
Here are the links which are mentioned in the news section and at other places in the magazine.
