FastForward is a brand new series of event for the music business calendar, providing a platform that exists to connect, engage, and inspire a diverse group of ambitious under 35s working in the music business, laying the foundation for a sustainable career in the modern music industry.
While the FastForward conference is aimed at under 35s, there are no strict rules as to who can attend. By limiting the attendance, these events are designed to allow for deeper networking. It’s not about revenue – it’s about meaningful discussion. Those establishing themselves in the industry who want to expand their network, rather than those who are fully established already, will find it most valuable.
The vision for FastForward was not only to bring together the next generation of leaders in the music industry, but to break down industry silos, and build a community of innovative people who want to see a different future to the past we’ve had. Taking the ‘annual conference’ model out of its mould, FastForward has also established a series of FFWDSocial events across the year, in addition to securing FastForward-curated Guest Panels at other music business events.
