Now you can plan your own musical journey across the four days at seven iconic venues in Johannesburg. In addition to presenting artist performances across diverse genres, RBMA Weekender will also be hosting a number of Weekender satellite events to keep you engaged.

To warm up for the festival, a photography exhibition entitled ‘Nightscapes’ will be on public display at the Kalashnikovv Gallery in Braamfontein. The exhibition will take viewers on a journey across Johannesburg, as seen through the lens of photographer Elsa Bleda.

Forming a part of the Weekender by day programme is a public RBMA lecture in collaboration with Hello Ambassador with RBMA alumni Culoe De Song at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre.

“I’m very pleased and looking forward to the event. I’ve always had great experiences with the Red Bull Music Academy, so this should be great end to the Summer craze I’m going through right now in the north,” commented Culoe De Song.

The afro-techno DJ will take to the the RBMA couch to cover all topics music industry related. “Looking forward to sharing my life adventures on and off stage at the session. Good vibes only!” he concluded.

The last day of RBMA Weekender will be rounded off by a Link Up live Jam Session workshop aimed at exploring the art of ‘synchronised producing’ between two producers and their computers.
