ABOUT TOAST 


Our flagship content, ‘TOAST’ is a season based live sessions series which showcase the best in emerging underground talent from the UK.
‘In a world where artists and music are consistently boxed in, TOAST sits in a realm of its own. Its select curation and bespoke presentation grant artists a stage built around their unique personality; a visually beautiful, yet comfortable space where creative freedom is encouraged.’
Our on-set crew features International DJ PK Brako, 2x BFI Future Film Festival Award winning Producer Oniqur Rahman, Art Director Sharmaarke Ali Adan (@sharmaarkealiadan / A-Cold-Wall, Bianca Saunders, Vogue Italia, New York Times) and Stylist Jonathan Johnson (@iamjonjohnson / Dazed, i-D, FKA Twigs & more).

We have already filmed and completed 3 episodes for our AW20 season due to be released Early 2021. Our Youtube Channel will also host an array of content ranging from mini documentaries, interviews and original content.

We also have plans set for a printed publication - “TOAST”. Which will feature news and content from the UK’s wide ranging music scenes, the hugely influential yet largely unreported UK fashion scene, and other miscellaneous cultural happenings as well as recommendations for things to do in cities around the UK. The website, launching in 2021, will also feature an online forum which will connect our core audience with one another, nurturing a new scene in itself.

We currently are owned by London Based Creative Agency FUTURE16. Our Season One initial investments were £8,683 growing exponentially for Season Two. Joining the TOAST team results in a high stake in equity and compensation on production of Season Two.
