The application phase is from April 14 – June 3, with application CDs available from or

The Academy is not just any old music event; it is a school of beats, rhymes and life. The program gives once-in-a-lifetime opportunities – such as the chance to go back down memory lane with music’s most prized contributors, to share futuristic studio perspectives or capture a timeless groove in a late night jam session. The Academy is a place where self-knowledge is prized above pride. It’s where music-makers young and old find the tools and inspiration to take their dreams to new heights.

New Zealand over the years has had a great representation of participants at the Academy which clearly demonstrates the strength of talent in this country. This year with we hope to have a number of successful applicants take part in the Melbourne Red Bull Music Academy. So spread the word!!

Workshop Term 1: 24 Sept – Oct 6

Workshop Term 2: Oct 15 – Oct 27

Red Bull Music Academy
The Red Bull Music Academy brings together DJs and music producers from diverse musical and cultural backgrounds to exchange their ideas about music and their knowledge of how life in the music industry works.
The two-week term schedules aim to cover all major aspects of DJ culture, including music history, technology and production, business and skills. We invite a variety of accomplished international guests - from industry movers and shakers to pirate radio station operators, from turntablists to sonic theorists - to meet our students and tell their own stories in their own words.

The first Red Bull Music Academy took place in Berlin in 1998. 50 DJ/producers from Germany and Austria were chosen to attend 2 fortnightly workshops on music history, technology and business. After two years in Berlin, we moved to Dublin, to New York, to London, to Sao Paulo, then to Cape Town, Rome and Seattle, increasing the international mix of our students to 28 countries. The purpose of the Academy is to provide a platform for the exchange of musical knowledge and ideas - a familiar atmosphere in which guest lecturers and participants can talk about the experiences and fascinations that make up their musical lives. The participants can also learn a lot from one another, sampling each other's styles and exchanging new ideas and techniques throughout the two weeks they're together.

The Academy doesn't give out any certificates or diplomas, and attending it won't buy anyone a career in the music industry. But it's a valuable experience for everyone; sharing in the successes and failures of the other guests and participants leaving them with a new understanding and approach towards music.
