Event details

The future of the music industry starts here.
On 23 & 24 February 2017, FastForward returns to the Muziekgebouw, for two jam-packed days of music industry insights and tight-knit networking opportunities. In 2016, we had over 140 Delegates attend from 16 different countries, all with their eyes on the future - and in 2017, we're going bigger & better.
What is FastForward?
FastForward is boutique music conference 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. Coverage from FFWD2016 is available here on our YouTube Channel.
