FACT was established in London in 2003 as a bi-monthly music and youth culture magazine. Covers were commissioned by Shepard Fairey, M.I.A., Peter Saville, Trevor Jackson, Klaxons, Bat for Lashes, Kate Moross and Animal Collective and the magazine quickly became renowned for profiling future stars at an early date.

In 2005, FACT went digital and in 2009 became an exclusively online publication. One of the magazine’s longest-running digital series is the weekly FACT mix; past contributors include Autechre, Slowdive, Four Tet, Holly Herndon, Carl Craig, Oneohtrix Point Never and St. Vincent.

FACT started creating its own exclusive video content in 2012 with an in-house, global team of producers, directors, editors and animators who work alongside a wider network of freelancers. FACT’s visual content has been viewed over 30 million times thanks in part to our flagship series Against The Clock. With over 150 episodes, Against The Clock has featured chart-topping rap producer Zaytoven, drum & bass legend Roni Size, Lady Gaga’s tour DJ Lady Starlight and Future producer Southside.

In 2018, FACT is one of the Internet’s most popular and influential music publications, with full-time staff in the UK and US, and its own branded video content. FACT is part of VF Publishing, a subsidiary of The Vinyl Factory group.
