The local South African offshoot of the Red Bull Music Academy — the world-travelling series of music workshops and festivals, Bass Camp (#RBMA #BassCampZA) kicks off from October 29th to November 3rd 2013.
Local aspiring musicians will get a taste of Red Bull Music Academy’s Bass Camp over the course of five days. Thirty participants from all around the country will come together at the Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein, Johannesburg to give a taste of what it’s like being a participant at the Red Bull Music Academy.
Three of the country’s most talented producers, DJ Black Coffee, Culoe de Song and Julian Gomez whom have had the opportunity of being mentored by some of the most prolific names in music during previous Red Bull Music Academy editions – will share their experience and knowledge with the selected Bass Camp participants in lectures, studio sessions and live performances.
It will be followed by studio time in five high-end studios specially installed by the Red Bull Music Academy team.
The final day’s program will include a lecture by the international DJ /Producer François K, who recently took part in the Red Bull Music Academy earlier this year in New York. This will be open to the public to experience it firsthand.
A number of the RBMA events will take place throughout the week; including one at the Alex Theatre in Braamfontein on Saturday the 2nd of November with Francois K and the official closing party at Chaf Pozi in Soweto on Sunday the 3rd of November.
