Red Bull Music Academy, one of the most enviable opportunities currently available to developing musicians, has once again opened applications for the 2012 edition. The Academy, previously having taken place in locales like Madrid, London, Barcelona, Rome, Berlin, will be taking over New York City from September 30th until November 2nd. It provides the opportunity for 60 applicants from all aspects of the music industry – producers, vocalists, instrumentalists, DJs, from any genre – to absorb wisdom from an incredible variety of lecturers (previous lecturers include Erykah Badu, Gilles Peterson, ?uestlove, Clams Casino, Goldie, Theo Parrish… the list goes on). During the all-expenses-paid trip, attendees also get to work in studio space to their hearts’ content, and perform in iconic venues by night.
Fill out an application today (or at least before April 2nd) at www.redbullmusicacademy.com for your chance to join the ranks of RBMA alumni such as Hudson Mohawke, Om Unit, Jackmaster, Lunice, Flying Lotus, and more. If you have any questions, you can tweet them with the hashtag #RBMA2012 and Krystal Klear, who attended RBMA last year, will do his best to help you out.
