Music makers are also invited to apply for the
Red Bull Music Academy which will host the
next edition of its month-long music workshop
and festival series in Berlin from September 8
to October 12, 2018. After touching down in
cities across the globe, including Tokyo, New
York, Melbourne, Cape Town, Paris, São Paulo
and Montréal, the Academy returns to the place
where it all began back in 1998 to celebrate its
20th anniversary.
Every Academy is a world of its own, offering
new insights and perspectives on sound as
artists representing different genres, countries
and eras come together. 60 up-and-coming
musicians are selected for each edition and
flown to that year’s host city, embarking on a
creative journey that many describe as life-
changing. At the Academy, they hear lectures
from artists who have shaped music history,
exchange knowledge in all-night sessions in our
custom-built studios and collaborate with their
peers from opposite corners of the globe, while
the Academy simultaneously programs a month-
long series 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 the
other and celebrate music’s past, present and
The musical styles represented at the Academy
are just as diverse as the countries their
protagonists hail from – in fact, the mix of
sounds, skill sets and cultural backgrounds that
make up each Academy is never quite the
same. It’s this unique combination of people,
perspectives and environment that sees new
musical ideas take root, and flourish long after
the Academy ends. Therefore, we invite
instrumentalists, producers, DJs, engineers and
vocalists of all levels of experience to apply. All
that’s required is an openness to collaboration
and an interest in where music is heading.

To apply for The Red Bull Academy Berlin 2018
The application form can be downloaded from
the Academy website and must be submitted
between June 15 and September 4, 2017.
Each applicant must also submit a musical
demo, no longer than 30 minutes. This can be
uploaded at or
mailed to us on a CD. The Red Bull Music
Academy jury will announce the selected
applicants in early 2018.
