With a circulation of 60,000, Venus Zine is a print and web magazine focusing on women in music, art, film, fashion and d.i.y. culture. The music portion of the magazine contains features and interviews as well as CD and concert reviews.

Each month, Venus Zine will profile a different Sonicbids artist on, which receives approximately 150,000 unique visitors each month. A female band member is not required to be selected, but is strongly preferred. Additionally, Venus Zine is offering Sonicbids artists a unique opportunity for review or editorial coverage in the magazine. If an artist is good enough, they will be included in the hard copy version of the magazine, too.

Venus Zine covers a wide range of music, and will consider any genre except for death metal, sexist rap, and mainstream country. This means indie rock, hip-hop, experimental, dance and electronic, weird-folk, and pop rock. Artists previously featured in Venus Zine include Sleater-Kinney, Joanna Newsom, Bjork, Sufjan Stevens, Cat Power, Girl Talk, Feist, Andrew Bird, and Bon Iver.
