“We started FastForward to connect, engage, and inspire the next generation of music leaders. The response from the industry has been fantastic, the concept has resonated incredibly well, and we really feel that we have connected with a network of people who want to build a better future together.
It’s almost four years ago that FastForward was first conceived. Since then, we have run four sold-out events in Amsterdam, delivered two condensed versions of the event in London, and have since expanded into Australia with the launch of FastForward: Sydney.
It has been a really interesting journey; we have had people travel from over 20 countries, as far reaching as Canada, the USA, Australia, South Africa, Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, and Lithuania.
We have watched as a panel descended into a swearing-based drinking game and we have battled the elements to get to Amsterdam with epic post-BRITS hangovers, in what many described as ‘the worst flights of their lives’.
We have debated key issues about our industry at length in a refreshingly inclusive environment, and made a lot of new friends along the way. We can’t wait to see how FastForward grows in the years to come.”
