Over the last few years, Red Bull Music Academy has established itself as a real force for good, supporting fledgling talent with studio sessions and workshops and fuelling the electronic music ecosystem with sound clashes, festival stages and intimate club nights.
This spring, RBMA takes its commitment to celebrating UK music talent on the road, with the inaugural RBMA UK Tour hitting four cities renowned for their vibrant and ever-evolving contribution to the British – and global – musical landscape.
Bristol, Glasgow, London and Manchester will all host a series of events taking in the best of local talent, supported by some of the world’s biggest musical stars.
By day, lectures and workshops with the likes of A$AP Rocky, Seth Troxler, Julio Bashmore and Danny Brown will offer burgeoning talents and curious minds the opportunity to pick their idols’ brains, while by night, eye-popping rosters of the very best each city has to offer will be doing their thing at special parties in warehouses, pubs and even a West Country manor house.
The tour starts in Glasgow on the weekend of March 26-29, before moving on to Bristol for Easter Weekend (April 2-6), London on April 8-12 and finally Manchester on April 16-19.
