salt-peanuts.eu is a nordic website for "strong music". It's a website run by volunteers, publishing festival reports, concert reports, album reviews and news from the jazz world every day. They mostly writes about jazz, but also other kind of music, if they thinks it's good enough. The team consists of 7 - 10 people working voluntarily for the magazine, all year around. From August 2018 to August 2019 they published more than 2500 articles. Every month they reach between 15000-30000 exclusive readers with the articles, and they hope to grow even more in the coming years.
