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 We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers.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 148 is published on the 20th September
This issue celebrates ABBA's return with details of their Voyage project, including exclusive news on the forthcoming album and an insight into the planned shows in 2022. Fans report on launch party events in Stockholm and elsewhere, while we also look more closely at the new song, I Still Have Faith In You.
Helen Sjöholm talks to us about twenty years of BAO, and Marcia Barrett from the group Boney M. talks about her career and the parallels with ABBA back in the day.
New photos and the usual colour poster are featured - and naturally, we continue to celebrate the Fan Club's 35th anniversary, this time focusing on Frida with a chance to win her personal message to us.
