Red Bull Music Academy – Lecture Sessions

When one thinks of iconic artefacts of music history, certain guitar models might come to mind, or microphones, synthesizers or big mixing boards. And yet, for more than two decades, the Red Bull Music Academy couch has seen an equally high concentration of talent. On April 4th and 5th, the Academy lands at Lisboa Electronica with four lectures that will combine stories and histories, secrets and strategies from key players on the culture scene. The conversations take place at Capitólio Theatre in the heart of Lisbon, in the historical Parque Mayer. Following each conversation, the Academy will open the floor to questions or comments from the audience.
