Over Three Decades Representing World Music and Reggae Artists

Fast Lane International, founded in 1984 to spread the positive conscious energy and message of Reggae Music, has entered its fourth decade of representation for artists in the reggae and world beat genres. Classic roots reggae greats and exciting new world music artists grace the roster for 2018. The agency also continues to assist venues and event planners with bookings, budgeting and talent buying.
