Over the last two decades, the Red Bull Music Academy has touched down in cities across the globe, including Tokyo, New York, Melbourne, Cape Town, Paris, São Paulo and Montréal. We are proud to announce that the Red Bull Music Academy will take place in Berlin in 2018, returning to the city where the Academy began for our 20th anniversary edition. This year’s headquarters will be at the Funkhaus, a historic recording studio complex in East Berlin and one of the largest in the world.
Red Bull Music Academy Berlin 2018 will run from September 8th to October 12th. Every Academy is a world of its own, offering new insights and perspectives on sound. 60 up-and-coming musicians are selected for each edition, where they hear lectures from artists who have shaped music history, exchange knowledge in all-night studio sessions and collaborate with their peers from around the globe. At the same time, the Academy programs a month-long festival of public concerts and club nights 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 each other and celebrate music’s past, present and future.
