Gaffa is a free Danish music magazine, 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.[2] It features music news and notes, interviews, album reviews and upcoming concert schedules.

The name Gaffa comes from gaffa tape, with the magazine's stated intention of "binding the different parts of the music community together".[3]


Gaffa's website,, was established in 1996.[4] Since December 2008 all back issues of the magazine are accessible online free of charge.[5][6]

In 2008 GAFFA launched GAFFA live - a concert overview for Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

In 2009 GAFFA was launched in Sweden (GAFFA Norway).

In April 2006, Gaffa launched a user-written music encyclopedia, GAFFApedia, as a subsection of its website.[7] Based on , it is similar to World Heritage Encyclopedia and covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike licence.[8][9]

GAFFApedia was closed in 2010.


Gaffa presented a further branch of the existing Danish magazine in January 2010, expanding into Sweden and later, in September 2011, also expanded to Norway.
