Red Bull Academy's event in Leeds will hark back to the era of raves.

Have your say

Paying tribute to the bygone era of illegal raves and keeping things on the down low, Red Bull Music Academy brings #0800R1NG2RAV3 to Leeds on November 21.

Building on the success of the event’s debut during the Red Bull Music Academy UK Tour in April, with a bill that included Moxie, Shy FX, Fabio & Grooverider, the #0800R1NG2RAV3 locations and line-ups will only be revealed, in true old-school fashion, on the day of the event.

With the throwback format established, expect the talent to buck the trend; drawing on some of today’s finest DJ talent to bring the event up to date.

An artistic beacon for the northern party scene, Leeds will be the host city for the first event, while London provides a fertile dance floor somewhere within the M25 for its second instalment.

Putting a 2015 spin on the old mechanic, the line-up and location of the event will only be released on the day in response to tweeting the hashtag #0800R1NG2RAV3 in the build up to the event. This will provide lucky recipients with a tweet reply containing the details for the event.
