MUSIC: Red Bull Sound Select 10 City, 10 Concert Blitz


After annihilating NYC in May with dozens of cheap to free shows with the Red Bull Music Academy the overlords at Red Bull apparently got together and said to themselves, “Fuck it.” For the weekend of July 26th to 28th they’ve got ten different concerts in ten different cities.

Think of it as Coachella for the jetsetter set, except in this case each cities lineup is so packed you aren’t going to feel too envious if you ain’t got that Magna Carta cash to hop on the private jet. Particularly since the price for these shows are set to to the ever popular, “Free”. All you need to do is sign onto, create your profile and cop a ticket.

Why is it worth the two minutes of your time to do this? Depending on where you are you can get your headwrap and soul on with Erykah Badu, get “turnt up” with Juicy J, trade fashion tips with Theophilus London, or go full on stadium rockstar with the Gaslight Anthem. Pretty much it’s a no brainer, so get to registering people.
