FACT was founded in 2003 as a British bi-monthly music and youth culture magazine. The magazine became notable for commissioning covers by artists including M.I.A., Peter Saville, Trevor Jackson, Klaxons, Bat for Lashes, Kate Moross and Animal Collective, while its New Talent section was renowned for profiling future stars at an early date: Florence + The Machine, Adele and more were all interviewed early in their careers. As well as its regular contributors, writing in FACT came from artists such as Andrew Weatherall, Kode9, Julian Cope and Richard X. In 2005, FACT went digital, and in 2009 it became exclusively online, after the website’s status overtook that of the print magazine. It also introduced the FACT mix series, where each week an artist contributes an exclusive mix to download from the website. Past contributors include Autechre, the xx, Four Tet, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Damon Albarn, Carl Craig and St Vincent. In 2016, FACT is one of the Internet’s most popular and influential music publications, with full-time staff in the UK, US and Australia, and its own online TV channel, FACT TV. FACT is part of VF Publishing, a subsidiary of The Vinyl Factory group.
