This article aims to expand media framing research beyond traditional content analyses of political coverage and examines the consequences of framing found in music journalism, since entertainment coverage receives a significant share of media and audience attention. To understand the results of such framing, nineteen interviews were conducted with content producers – a specific group of expert writers, editors and publishers who offered essential perspectives about the consequences of a particular case – focusing on the example of coverage frequently characterizing the band Phish (1983–present) vis-à-vis the Grateful Dead (1965–1995). Findings indicate that framing can be a problem for the framed subject, but can also lead to certain benefits.
