The journal, that seeks to fill the gap in music criticism in Slovenia, especially as regards new musical forms, is divided into several sections: fresh news with event calendar, reviews and representations of new records or projects, interviews in writing and video, and essays and diaries.
One of the most important events in the organization of Centralala is the periodic conversation about the music scene, its diversity and intersections, cooperation and co-creation of the common space, as well as music publishing, the need for documentation, recording, publishing of records and various publishing models.
