History and profile
Gaffa is published on a monthly basis since 1983. The magazine is distributed to places such as educational institutions, record shops, libraries and cafés, as well as a small number to paying subscribers. It features music news and notes, interviews, album reviews and upcoming concert schedules.
In 2008 Gaffa launched GAFFA live - a concert overview for Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
In April 2006, Gaffa launched a user-written music encyclopedia, GAFFApedia, as a subsection of its website. Based on MediaWiki, it is similar to Wikipedia and covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike licence.
GAFFApedia was closed in 2010.

Vores idé med bladet er, at det skal have samme effekt som "GAFFA-tape": at få de forskellige grene af musikmiljøet til at hænge sammen
