With applications open for Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, a series of events across the UK have been announced to celebrate another year of RBMA - and this means lectures, workshops, and performances by some awesome producers, including the academy's alumni.

Jackmaster, Breach and Greg Wilson are some of the names popping up across the multiple events scheduled for this series of free events, which kick off on January 27th in Glasgow with DJ and production duo Optimo giving a workshop on Ableton, Petrichor explaining how to maximise live performances, and alumnus Jackmaster talking about his post-RBMA life.

On January 28th all roads lead to Manchester's workshop by Greg Wilson, with former RBMA participants Illum Sphere and Krystal Klear also making an appearance. Bristol is set to host a lecture by DJ and producer Erol Alkan and a workshop by Ben Westbeech on the 29th, and on the 30th Leeds welcomes Detroit techno producer Derrick May and Alt-J's Thom Green. T. Williams will be present at all dates to talk about his own RBMA experience in New York last year.

As the events are free but work on a first-come-first-served basis, we advise you to email RBMASessionsInvite@uk.redbull.com to confirm a place.
