It's with heavy hearts that after 20 years and 179 issues of Big Cheese magazine that we announce that our next issue, on sale Feb 18th, will be our last and Big Cheese will cease publication in its current form.

The last BC will be a Special 20th anniversary edition, with extra pages, packed with all the biggest and best bands of the last 20 years.

We have had an absolute blast bringing you all the cool stuff from the world of Big Cheese since 1996 (see our first ever Big Cheese issue cover on the right!) but it's time for us to move on to new projects.

With the continued success of Vive Le Rock magazine and the newly launched Louder Than War magazine (going bi-monthly in March to meet demand) keeping us busy, it's time for a change. Big Cheese will however make a slight return in a different, heavier form in May - so stay tuned for that. Plans are also underway for a one final Big Cheese gig as well.

We just wanted to thank you all for coming on this ride with us. Your support has been fantastic. Here's to new beginnings...
