In the magazine December 2020 / January 2021

Our Class of 2021 issue, featuring Ashnikko, Bree Runway, Baby Queen, Master Peace & more!

Well, readers, we did it. We finally made it to December and frankly, we couldn’t be happier about it. And not just because we’ll all be rather glad to see the back of 2020, but mostly because we can now finally reveal our Class of 2021 and shine a light of some of the artists we’re convinced are going to make our lives all the brighter next year!

That’s right: our December 2020 / January 2021 issue - and our final of the year - is officially out now, and we can’t wait for you to dive in.

Fronted by the larger-than-life, effervescent Ashnikko, DIY’s Class of 2021 issue is all about the celebrating the bright young things of new music and to do so, our new issue is packed with neon and fluorescence, with the aim to spread a little light after such a dark year.

Other acts featured in our jam-packed Class of 2021 include the incredible Bree Runway, Master Peace, Baby Queen, Black Country, New Road, BENEE and Tate McRae. There’s also other amazing new acts such as Jelani Blackman, Lynks, Phoebe Green, Jazmin Bean, PVA, Pa Salieu and Buzzard, Buzzard, Buzzard. Phew!

And that’s not all: we also give you a rather handy round-up of some the most exciting records that are set to land next year, including chats with You Me At Six, Self Esteem, Julien Baker, Squid, girl in red and more.

Fancy getting your hands on a copy? Order the issue below and get it sent straight through your letterbox just in time for Christmas! Now, pass that mince pie…
