FORGE AHEAD INITIATIVE
The FORGE AHEAD INITIATIVE (F.A.I) is a project which has been conceptualised and is being run by The FORGE MUSIC GROUP in conjunction with The Patriot-Home of Rock (Venue). Please note that other venues around the U.K will also be utilised however The Patriot is the central hub for the project.
The rationale behind the FAI Project is to identify and assist the very best young original unsigned bands who meet the qualifying criteria, and offer them guidance and support in every aspect of the music business and assist them in their progression. The ten bands chosen to be part of the FAI Project each year will be offered support slots at gigs, at festivals and on tours and will have the full support of The Forge Music Group.
The other main aspect of FAI is to attract young fans into the original rock/ metal scene by encouraging their interest via the bands who are from their peer group / age group.
The bands involved in the inaugural Forge Ahead Initiative which will run from 1st April 2021 until 1st June 2022 are as follows...
28 DOUBLE - BACKWOODS CREEK - BAD ACTRESS - MAD HAVEN - MERCURY RISING
ROYAL BLOOM - STELLARIS - THIEVES OF LIBERTY - UNKNOWN REFUGE
