A four-city marathon of special shows, workshops, and lectures.

Throughout the month of October, Red Bull Music Academy will be on tour across the UK, calling in at four major UK cities – Liverpool, Glasgow, London and Leeds – over consecutive weekends.

Continuing the Academy’s nearly 20-year mission to celebrate and educate within music, the RBMA tour will offer the musical icons and rising stars of each city will be a 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.

Across genres as diverse as hip hop, grime, soul, house, techno, garage and electro, the RBMA UK Tour will present club nights, studio sessions, AV shows, art installations, radio broadcasts and, ever at the centre of the Academy experience, intimate live lectures with some of today’s most important artists.


The Red Bull Music Academy is a world-traveling series of music workshops and festivals. It has been pairing music legends and emerging beatsmiths since 1998 in cities such as London, Berlin, Cape Town, New York, Barcelona and Toyko.

The 18th edition of the Red Bull Music Academy will take place in Montreal in autumn 2016, bringing together 70 carefully selected producers, vocalists, beat-makers, instrumentalists and DJs. They will be invited to attend intimate lecture sessions and collaborate on music in an expansive, custom-fitted complex of creative and studio spaces.

The unique combination of old-school knowledge and new-school sounds is unrivalled for its creative exploration and achievement.
