Celebrating 20 years of music innovation The Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA) will host the next edition of its month-long music workshop and festival series in Berlin, Germany, from 8 September to 12 October 2018, and here is your chance to be a part of it! Every Academy is a world of its own, offering aspiring musicians new insights and perspectives into different genres, countries, and eras. After successful runs in cities all around the world including Tokyo, New York, Melbourne, Cape Town, Paris, São Paulo, and Montréal, the Academy goes back to the place it all begin 20 years ago. 2018 will see 60 up-and-coming musicians get selected and flown to Berlin, for a life-changing adventure. At the Academy, students will listen to lectures from influential artists who have shaped music history, exchange knowledge in all-night sessions in custom-built studios, and collaborate with international peers from opposite corners of the globe, while simultaneously taking part in the Academy’s month-long series of public concerts and club nights all across the city. It all makes for a place where influential musicians meet a new generation, in a setting where both sides can learn from the other and celebrate music’s past, present and future. The musical styles are as diverse as the countries represented at the Academy. It doesn’t matter if you’re an instrumentalist, producer, DJ, engineer, or vocalist, everyone is welcome to sign up for the Academy. The only requirement is passion for the craft, openness to collaboration, and an interest in where music is heading. Those who are interested can download the application form from the Academy’s official website, and submit it by 4 September 2017. Each applicant must also submit a musical demo, no longer than thirty minutes. Selected applicants will be announced in early 2018.
