History edit

Far Out was founded in 2010 by Lee Thomas-Mason, then a student of Leeds Metropolitan University.[citation needed] Shortly after, Jack Whatley became an editor of the website as both pushed the content into new directions.[citation needed] Lee Thomas-Mason had previously worked as a sports reporter at Sky Sports, The Mirror and Metro.[4]

While first focusing on unsigned artists and independent music venues with a Gonzo journalism approach, Far Out expanded into coverage of cinema in 2013 and, subsequently, included curated travel, arts and photography sections.[5][6]

In 2017 Far Out Magazine partnered with suicide prevention charity CALM.[7]

Far Out was the panellist for the Tramlines apply to play 2022.[8]
