The online music magazine I Like Music was launched in 2001 by a small team of young people who like music, for others who like music, as an independent alternative to the plethora of corporate-run sites. I Like Music has grown 100% organically and retains full independence despite its hundreds of thousands of monthly visitors.

I Like Music covers a variety of music genres and runs music news, playlists, features, photos, videos and more. The magazine has become well known for conducting in-depth artist interviews, with an archive of over 750. In partnership with The Official Charts Company, I Like Music is the only place online where you can stream the entire UK Top 40 singles chart. The magazine also features the popular Post Playlist, a 20 track playlist of the best new music sent into the site put together by the magazine's Editor Kim Hillyard.
