Applications Open for Red Bull Music Academy

Over the last 15 years, the Red Bull Music Academy has circumnavigated the globe, bringing many of the finest musicians in electronic and rhythm-lead music into a lecture hall environment, and offering unique insights into their craft. Many of the alumni have testified to the indelible mark the academy has left on them; you only need to watch the introduction to the video below to understand the good work RBMA are doing for music:

This year’s applications for the Tokyo tour in autumn are now open, and to mark the occasion, RBMA have announced a series of sessions with free entry across the UK. The events will be twofold: each evening there being lectures and workshops, followed later by intimate performances from musical luminaries and former Academy participants.

starting tonight in Glasgow, Jackmaster and Petrichor are featuring alongside Optimo; then tomorrow in Manchester, re-edit maestro Greg Wilson and Magnetic Man’s Artwork are set to give a lecture and workshop respectively, followed by performances by Illum Sphere and Krystal Klear later on in the evening. On Wednesday, Errol Alkan will offer insights into his creative method, while Breach will be leading a workshop. Finally, this Thursday in Leeds, Detroit techno pioneer Derrick May will be hosting a lecture that is sure to gather a large crowd.

This is set to be a unique opportunity to learn the ins and outs of music, so if you’re in one of these cities make sure you put in an appearance yourself!


Make sure to RSVP the free sessions though…
