The Next RED BULL SOUND SELECT Showcase is Happening in Sydney this Month

Let's be real: Australia, and particularly Sydney, has been going through some tough live music times. We've all experienced the struggle of trying to find a bar after-after hours to enjoy a drink and some live music. But on May 27, that will all change for one night as Aussie MC Tuka, soul-soaring rapper Sampa The Great and lyrical whiz B Wise have been announced for the next edition of Red Bull Sound Select. And you are all cordially invited.

Red Bull Sound Select is expanding its series to include Sydney in its continued global takeover, bringing in Johann Ponniah from I OH YOU and Travis Banko from the Laneway Festival to curate one hell of a debut event in Australia!

Red Bull Sound Select have always been about unearthing innovative and talented artists through a brilliant development program that has been launched successfully through Canada, North America and New Zealand.

The second instalment of Red Bull Sound Select Sydney kicks off on May 27th at The Chippendale Hotel and is curated by Laneway Festival’s Travis Banko, who has handpicked three of the brightest up-and-coming names in Australian hip-hop.

Headlining the night will be Sydney based MC Tuka, rising star Sampa The Great, and B Wise – a Nigerian-Australian MC who has been making serious noise in the scene.

This showcase will take a nod to the African heritage of the two Red Bull Sound Select artists, and fans are encouraged to get down early for some limited edition surprises.

First come, best dressed! Capacity is limited at the shows. RSVP tickets are only $3 on the door, or $10 without RSVP on the door.
