Event participant performing at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York, April 28 to May 30, 2013

Lineup Announced For Red Bull Music Academy’s Four Day Festival

For four straight days, Red Bull Music Academy will be flooding our city with entertainment for the Red Bull Music Academy Weekender 2016. To kick things off, we’ve been presented with a line up of live music that’s as long as your arm.

The whole shebang will be spread across an array of venues and locations in Sydney this September. A number of workshops including DIY Soundsystem and Why Hardware will be going down at the brand new Cake Wines Factory in Redfern. Meanwhile, over at the Domain, Flight Facilities will be performing to a sold out crowd, backed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Ta-Ku will be exhibiting his skills as a producer and filmmaker and will be making his feature film debut with (m)edian – a look through the lens at Sydney at Palace Verona Cinema. To celebrate their 20th anniversary, hugely influential hip hop label Stones Throw will be bringing down their finest – including Peanut Butter Wolf – for a showcase Manning Bar, and plenty more going dow in the CBD and it’s surroundings.

Collectively, the 40-odd artists will be creating a total of 11 shows for our fair city. See the full lineup and ticketing details here below.
