Dime Entertainment Magazine

DIME Entertainment is the Southern cure-all for boredom, and a bold answer to the music lover’s prayer. DIME is a monthly print magazine based in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, covering entertainment, the arts, food, drink and culture across the Deep South. DIME shines a megawatt spotlight on the beautiful, the wild and the weird of the southern entertainment world.

Scrap what you’ve read about Mississippi.. the published stats and other downers. Our state is a rich one, not in currency but in culture. The true Deep South, and Mississippi in particular, is drenched with artistic talent thicker than our humidity, and personality bigger than our hairdos.

Jacqueline Lee, editor of Dime Magazine, pushed for a magazine that highlights and represents the arts across Mississippi. Now, Dime covers arts, culture, and entertainment in our state.

“I think what we suffer from here the most is a self-esteem issue. We’re just not fully aware of how cool we really are, and some of the goods, the experiences, that you can have here people in Los Angles and Austin and Nashville couldn’t replicate if they tried.”-Jacqueline
