Dazed


Dazed (formerly Dazed & Confused) is a monthly British style magazine founded in 1991. Its founding editors were Jefferson Hack and fashion photographer Rankin. It covers music, fashion, film, art, and literature.

Background

Beginning as a black-and-white folded poster published sporadically, the magazine soon turned full colour, promoted with London club nights.

Dazed Film & TV

In 1999 Dazed Film & TV was founded, a production company that would produce the first masthead television broadcast ever, the one hour special Renegade TV Gets Dazed, for Channel 4. In 2001 the Dazed Group, as it styled itself, launched the luxury biannual AnOther Magazine. In 2005 the Group launched Another Man, a biannual fashion title for men.

In April 2011, Dazed & Confused launched its first live festival in East London, Dazed Live, featuring live music performances from Gang Gang Dance, Factory Floor, Black Devil Disco Club, About Group (featuring Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor), SBTRKT, Caribou, and more.

In November 2006, Dazed launched a new web based strand of the magazine titled Dazed Digital, which delivers fashion, film, music and art news and online events.
