Red Bull's traveling workshop and performance collective, Red Bull Music Academy, announced they will be shutting down in October of this year. In addition to the academy, Red Bull Radio will be dissolved as well.

After 20 years of supporting artists worldwide with its music program in a rapidly changing world, Red Bull will maintain its purpose of providing a global platform to promote creativity—but it is changing the means of delivery. Red Bull will be moving away from a strongly centralized approach, will gradually phase out the existing structure and will implement a new setup which empowers existing Red Bull country teams and utilizes local expertise.
