For the third year running, Red Bull Music Academy will be convening an almighty musical dust-up.
This time around, the venue – and the stakes – are higher than ever, with Wembley Arena reconfigured as a battleground in which four different soundsystems compete for victory. Over four rounds, each crew will have limited time to attempt to win over the crowd – and there are some formidable contenders throwing their hats into the ring: Major Lazer, Boy Better Know, Annie Mac (backed by Magnetic Man, Redlight, Disclosure, Rudimental and more) and past winners Channel One. Expect a ton of unannounced guests, special versions, tricks, and in the case of Channel One particularly, a lot of bass.
Oh, and it’s presented by the big dog Tim Westwood and Gemma Cairney, in case you needed further persuasion.
Here at FACT we’ve been getting very excited about the event, which takes place on November 7 – we’ve even ran interviews with Westwood and Magnetic Man’s Artwork in the lead-up – and we’re now giving away two tickets to the show. To enter, either sign up to our newsletter, or share this article on Facebook or Twitter. Our winner will be picked on Tuesday November 6.
