Behind The Greens witnessed the launch of Red Bull Sound Select in Melbourne last week. The event was hosted at Collingwood’s own, The Gasometer Hotel, with the venue hitting full capacity before 9PM.
Red Bull Sound Select is an artist development program known for providing the freshest music. They already have an intercontinental presence, all through North America, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, Sydney and now finally Australia’s arts capital, Melbourne.
Chapter music curated the inaugural event, providing us with a night of punk. Tyrannamen headlined, and was supported by Sex Drive and Miss Destiny. DJ Psychedelic Coven, a female duo consisting of Jenny Branagan and Kate Reid also DJ’d throughout the event.
These events will be held every month, and the lineups picked by either, Laneway Festival, I OH YOU or Chapter Music.
Red Bull Sound Select supports its acts with festivals, in-studio collaborations, 200+ annual shows, marketing and music distribution opportunities. Internationally, they have previously linked up with Chance The Rapper, Mick Jenkins, Gallant, Jazz Cartier and many more. There is no doubt that Red Bull is a driving force in the Australian Music Industry.
The next event in Melbourne is on July 27, and is curated by St. Jeromes Laneway Festival, featuring Slum Sociable, Jonti and 30/70. RSVP HERE.
