Recognise the two extraordinarily talented women in the image above? They’re the faces of two Kiwis picked to be part of the 2018 Red Bull Music Academy – Indira Force (Indi, Doprah) and Millie Lovelock (Astro Children).
The 20th instalment of the month-long creative workshop will kick off in Berlin this September, with 61 musical participants from 37 countries. Participants will attend lectures and workshops with some of music’s brightest lights and work on music together in a custom-built recording environment.
Concurrently, there will be a month-long festival 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 each other and celebrate music’s past, present and future.
