The Redbull Music Academy is almost like a global music conference and festival for DJs that specializes in the future of the music industry.
The Redbull Academy website explains what they do well:
“At the Academy you will hear lectures both from pioneering mavericks of old and trailblazing sound rebels of the present, followed by late-night recording sessions putting that breadth of knowledge and inspiration into practice in ten custom-made studios. Then there’s the chance to perform in some of the host city’s most iconic clubs and concert halls. And there’s still plenty of time to check gear, chat on tunes, jump on live radio broadcasts, get a glimpse into local musical hybrids, and ask the questions you were always keen on asking, as well… If you ever chat with any past alumni, they often describe the experience as a game changer.”
They record evert lecture and throw it up on their site as high-quality DJ training videos that show you how to DJ and the future of DJing.
