In 2013 the agency was inducted into a leading network of event producers, globally touring festivals and digital music communities. With offices in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, New York, Amsterdam, and Berlin, Fame House now serves as the chief digital agency for companies like ID&T, Beatport, Disco Donnie Presents, Made Event and more.
Hahn was honored at the May 1st Drexel Alumni Association award ceremony. Music Industry Professor Ryan Schwabe, who nominated Hahn, said, “Eric Hahn and his business partner Mike Fiebach realized very early that the music industry was moving towards a 'direct to fan' digital marketplace. They quickly recognized the limitations of an independent artist working in a digital marketplace and built the infrastructure necessary for artists to succeed.”
