Red Bull Music Academy will join forces with Sydney’s Laneway Festival and Syd City label Future Classic to present the best home-grown and international talent they can offer.

Laneway Festival will be the first stop of feature events for Red Bull Music Academy Down Under next year as it builds on its fostering of live talent and signature events throughout the country, aligning forces with Future Classic in providing top notch line-ups for Australian audiences.
