Ever since, pioneers and new talents from the music scene meet every year to expand their stylistic horizons and exchange musical experiences. The participation at the Red Bull Music Academy is a great distinction in itself: this year 2,500 musicians from 79 countries applied for 60 seats in Melbourne.
“The idea of the Red Bull Music Academy is fantastic. A large variety of music enthusiasts can be found here, anything from a DJ or producer to a singer or audio engineer. Our products excel at a place like this because of the excellence and passion the artists require from not only themselves, but their equipment,“ said Walter Rührig, Product Manager at AKG.
