FORWARD began 10 years ago because of three things.

  1. Logistics ... our crew were already throwing weeklies and one week a month we were throwing Friday and Saturday parties, so why not throw in a 3rd day ... expand the line ups and have a festival?!
  2. Experiences gave us the inspiration, vision and energy to want to do a festival
  3. The community of talented and passionate people in our hometown that we’re as into music and culture as I was and wanted to share our city with artists we admired and appreciated.

We’ve always been about supporting and pushing new underground talent ... it feeds us and inspires us. We hope it does the same for you.
