The Fader's annual Fader Fort multi-day showcase at SXSW in Austin has become one of the most in-demand events each year at the conference that invades central Texas each March. Now, the long-standing event, which will be in its 17th year in 2018, will be immortalized with a hardcover photographic retrospective called FADER FORT: Setting The Stage, commemorating the first 15 years of the Fader Fort. The book will be available online and at select retailers March 1, and is available for pre-order now right here.
FADER FORT: Setting The Stage will also double as the first release from the Fader's new publishing division, aptly named Fader Books. The 250-page tome includes introductions from Diddy and Damon Albarn, as well as portraits and performance and backstage shots of artists such as Kanye West, Amy Winehouse, Kendrick Lamar, Lou Reed, Erykah Badu and The Killers, among others.
