Future Music Festival have announced their plans to expand the festival into Asia by March 2012. Future Music’s Tour Director, Brett Robinson, yesterday confirmed that, as of next year, Future will be adding one new show in Asia, which they hope will attract music lovers from all over the continent, rather than singling out a particular city. There has also been talk of building upon these plans down the track, which hints at the possibility of more than one Asian show for Future in the future.
Robinson has said that organisers aim to allow the festival's scope to grow organically over time. “Obviously we won’t get the entire line-up," Robinson said of 2012, "but a very strong contingent have already confirmed.” Robinson has suggested that the key headliners will be on the bill, though some artists will unfortunately already have commitments elsewhere, especially since the festival clashes with SxSW.
In addition to their plans for expanding the festival, Robinson has also mentioned that the company are working on making the Australian product even better in coming years. Founded in 2006, the festival is fast making itself known nationwide and has set its sights on becoming one of Asia's biggest festivals as well. If they continue to attract headlining acts like New Order, Fatboy Slim and Swedish House Mafia, then they will certainly be well on their way.
