The Cultural Centre Maribor publishes the Frontier book series, which to date offers over 75 titles in the field of humanities and social sciences (popular culture, media theory, sociology of culture, arts-rock culture, comics, the music industry) and literature (poetry and prose).
The aim of the Frontier collection is to cover marginal topics and encourage research into often overlooked social phenomena.
At the end of the 1980s, Dušan Hedl established the Front Rock record label. In 1999, Front Rock was integrated into the music publishing programme of the non-governmental cultural organisation Subkulturni azil, later renamed as Kulturni center Maribor (Culture Centre Maribor). Five years later, the Front Rock record label had released over 50 recordings by punk and rock bands or compilations.
The Front Rock concept insists on (dis)covering new ground. It has offered the "first record" possibility to numerous local and international independent rock groups. The Akord Records label basically continues the Front Rock concept – the programme features primarily the ground-breaking first recordings of talented and skilful musicians.
