Red Bull Music Academy
Team Love work collaboratively with Red Bull Music Academy to host a series of bespoke musical experiences and events in Bristol including St Pauls carnival, RBMA Culture Clash and the RBMA Lecture Sessions.
Assuming responsibility for artist and venue booking, production services and handling on-the-ground logistics, Team Love work closely with Red Bull to ensure that all events run smoothly, staying within budget and on brand at all times.
St Pauls Carnival
St. Pauls Carnival is one of the most important cultural events to take place in Bristol, dating back to the late sixties when it was founded as a community event for the city’s Afrikan-Caribbean community. Team Love balance the considerations of Red Bull with those of the long-serving community event organisers to curate and produce a hugely popular stage that is at capacity throughout the day. Acts that have played on the stage include Toddla T, Redlight, DJ Die, Joker and David Rodigan.
RBMA Culture Clash
Red Bull Culture Clash are a series of gigs that showcase the best of UK bass music, pitting some of the most influential sound systems head-to-head and setting the scene for the finale: Culture Clash event at Wembley Arena. Team Love have been responsible for hosting the Bristol leg of the series both times it has visited the city, hosting raucous showdowns attended by a who’s who of the city’s underground.
RBMA Lecture Sessions
RBMA worked with Team Love to host a series of lectures with some of the biggest names in electronic music in Bristol’s city centre. The lectures were followed up with a high profile club event with featured artists including John Talabot, Andrés and Justin Vandervolgen.
RBMA UK Tour
In the Spring of 2015, Team Love hosted the RBMA UK Tour, a series of unique musical events taking place in Glasgow, London, Manchester, and Bristol. The team’s contribution to the South-Western leg consisted of three very special events, beginning with an open discussion between Seth Troxler and head of Resident Advisor Nick Sabine, followed by a Love Inn takeover by Seth and his Smokey Tails restaurant staff. The following night saw Team Love join forces with Crack Magazine to host Lords of the Manor, and unprecedented club night-come-house party that staged the maniacal Detroit hip-hop stylings of Danny Brown in an 18th Century manor house just outside of Bristol. The weekend climaxed in a set by Scandinavian psych-rockers GOAT who performed to a masked and costumed audience in the lofty surroundings of St Paul’s Church, bringing Team Love’s most recent joint venture with RBMA to a psychedelic and visually spectacular close.
