A Red Bull Radio Podcast

To celebrate 20 years of Red Bull Music Academy, Berlin Zwanzig – “Berlin Twenty” in English – explores 20 songs that have defined Berlin’s musical landscape from 1998 to 2018, by way of interviews between Red Bull Radio’s Vivian Host and the artists, journalists and scene stalwarts who bore witness to this fertile period in the city’s musical history: Jazzanova, Lotic, Kiki, Alec Empire, Perel, Pan Daijing, René Pawlowitz aka Shed, Dirty Döring, Barbara Morgenstern, Sven von Thülen, Spider (Supersonic Soundsystem), Alexandra Döner, Marcus Staiger, Martin Böttcher, and Daniel Rerat.

Berlin Zwanzig combines the celebratory anniversary with the homecoming of the RBMA in Germany’s capital city. The podcast and the 20th edition marks the first and the last Red Bull Music Academy.
