Did you know that New Orleans is the most musical place on earth? Now you can experience the unique music and culture of New Orleans FREE on your iPhone!

Every month for almost 25 years, OffBeat Magazine has taken its readers inside New Orleans' music, food and culture, and on a great trip through Louisiana’s fairs, festivals, and unique cultural traditions through its monthly print publication, its website at, a weekly newsletter, the Weekly Beat, and through its annual music awards party and celebration, the Best of The Beat Awards.

OffBeat’s specialty is the rich musical culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. We do pay tribute to the historical figures who defined the region's past in jazz, R&B, soul, Cajun and zydeco. But OffBeat also focuses on its hip musical present and the musicians who play funk, rock, hip-hop and the adventurous blends and variations that develop almost daily in the Big Easy. OffBeat investigates the city's rich food culture in news, reviews, and interviews with chefs, parts of the restaurant industry, and musicians, who talk about where and what they eat, and why they love New Orleans. Learn about the city’s neighborhoods and traditions: from Mardi Gras Indians to the Voodoo Music Experience, from the Ninth Ward to “back o’ town,” OffBeat has its finger on the pulse of one of America’s most interesting—and fun—cities.
