MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - February 24, 2014) - As the Red Bull Music Academy rounds its fifteenth anniversary, RBMA Bass Camp
will touch down in Canada for the first time, sweeping through the city of Montreal this February 27-March 2. The thriving culture and unique sound of Montreal has deemed it the perfect place to give Canadians a glimpse of what's in store at Red Bull Music Academy Tokyo next fall.
Bass Camp is a shorter, more condensed version of the world-renowned Red Bull Music Academy program; it will bring more than 20 up-and-coming musicians from across Canada, handpicked by The Academy, together at the PHI Centre in Montreal for three days. They'll collaborate in studio, perform at public events across the city and get an inside look at the music industry by participating in lectures, workshops and studio sessions with a panel of local and international music legends. This year's panel of musical guests will include N.W.A.'s DJ Yella, Montreal's own Lunice and more.
Media are invited to capture elements of this first-of-its kind program live in person:

ABOUT RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY
The Red Bull Music Academy is an international workshop that was founded in 1998, and touches down in a different city each year. Next fall, in Tokyo, over two fortnight-long 'terms', some of the finest purveyors of rhythm and sound from all over the world will gather between the Academy's walls. Two groups of successful applicants, themselves representing a diverse range of music styles and methodologies, will attend lectures by musical pioneers and work on their own tunes in custom-built studios. By night, they have the chance to perform in some of the host city's most iconic clubs and concert halls. Applications for the Tokyo Academy will be open from January 15 - March 18, 2014. Red Bull Music Academy also runs a magazine (redbullmusicacademy.com) and a radio station (rbmaradio.com).
