Red Bull Music Academy will be hitting the road again this autumn, rolling through Liverpool, Glasgow, London and Leeds for a month-long programme of club nights, shows, lectures, workshops, daytime parties, live radio broadcasts and special events from some of music’s most eminent emissaries. Returning to the nation’s capital from 19th – 22nd October, musical icons and rising stars of the city will be given the platform to throw down and celebrate their contribution to the UK’s scene. They’ll be joined by international names that connect the dots between the UK and a global exchange of musical ideas.
The most anticipated dates of the tour will see grime kingpin turned pop king Dizzee Rascal hits the RBMA couch to discuss his ascent from Bow to the big time and performs his genre-defining grime album Boy In Da Corner in full. Elsewhere chart-bothering DJ duo Gorgon City conduct a workshop at Red Bull HQ, and see SLG’s Clore Studio together with pioneering events programmers Thirty Three Thirty Three collaborative art and music series, with music from Rezzett. Rejjie Snow hosts an intimate one-off show, as well as Jay Prince, who will bring his brand-new mixtape to light with the help of collaborators and special guests, before This Is Awfultakes off at night with the likes of Father, ABRA, Ethereal, Kilo Kishand more, as well as Awesome Tapes From Africa celebrating a decade of digging. On Sunday Lady Leshurr will bring the London leg to a finish with her her lyrical wit bare at Studio Science.
