Red Bull Music Academy is returning to where it all began. The revered music conference, workshop and festival series is heading to Berlin in 2018 to celebrate its 20th year.
The workshop will kick off next year on September 8 and run through October 12, 2018. The return to Berlin follows RBMA stops around the world in Tokyo, Paris, Montréal, New York, Sao Paolo and other major cultural hubs for music.
The application process is now open to music-makers all across the globe. The application form can be downloaded from the festival’s website. Each applicant must submit a demo, no longer than 30 minutes, either on the website, or mailed in via CD. All submissions must be made by September 4. Those selected will be notified early next year.
To get applicants and those potentially interested in the events next year excited, RBMA has released a special compilation of 48 tracks recorded by various artists during the workshop over the years. Some of the names on these tracks include Just Blaze, Stephen Bruner, Branko, Ango and Lucrecia Dalt.
