Fast Forward Austin is dedicated to performing, promoting, and presenting new and innovative music to the Austin community. Formed in 2010 by composers Ian Dicke, Robert Honstein and Steven Snowden, Fast Forward Austin strives to present fresh and exciting music that transcends the boundaries of established genres and traditions. Along with showcasing Austin’s most talented musicians, the festival also bridges together local cutting edge artists working in visual, dramatic, and graphic arts media. The culminating event will exhibit these important artists and musicians in an engaging and inviting festival for the entire community to enjoy. All net proceeds will be donated to Anthropos Arts, an Austin-based nonprofit organization that provides free music lessons, workshops, master classes, and performance opportunities for economically disadvantaged youth.
