Our History: TRIBE MAGAZINE
TRIBE® Magazine was a free print magazine originally distributed in Toronto, Ontario as well as across Canada from 1993 through to 2005. The magazine featured photography, music, CD reviews, dance and nightclub listings.
TRIBE® Magazine's beginnings coincided with Toronto's fledgling club scene. The name was coined after publisher alexd observed "tribes" of club kids roaming the streets of the city's fashion district looking for warehouse parties after the normal bars had closed.
In 2004, TRIBE® boasted a circulation of 100,000 readers a month. The magazine published 105 issues and is currently on hiatus.
The name TRIBE® was registered as a trademark in 2003 by Tribe Communications Inc. for use in online and print publishing.
TRIBE® is published by Tribe Communications Inc., a privately held Canadian company.
TRIBE® Printed Edition has ISSN 1480-6231, TRIBE®Online Edition: ISSN 1480-624X
TRIBE® - tribe.ca : One of Canada's first social networks
tribe.ca launched 1994 as the digital version of TRIBE MAGAZINE.
TRIBE was the first magazine in Canada to go online and the first to transition a printed format to an online social network. Today, TRIBE® - tribe.ca is a large, active online community and social network aimed at 18-34 year olds, with an overall focus on urban living in Canada.
The community contains separate sub-forums, referred to as "rooms" on TRIBE®, that cover a wide variety of topics including new music, technology, nightlife, culture, sports, men's and woman's issues, health, and politics. TRIBE® - tribe.ca contains over 4 million message posts, making it one of the largest message boards on the Internet (Big Boards).
The DJ Mixes forum contains the most extensive collection of links to DJ mixes by Canadian DJs in Canada. The DJ Mixes area was developed to allow Canadian DJs to showcase their skills, hopefully leading to paying gigs at nightclubs and events.
