As well as being lined-up for an intimate Red Bull Music Academy lecture, grime don Dizzee Rascal will be performing his Mercury Prize winning debut album, ‘Boy In Da Corner’, in full this October.
In a mirror of the same show from Red Bull Music Academy’s New York festival earlier this year, Dizzie Rascal will perform the album in full at a soon-to-be-announced London venue this October.
Joining Dizzee Rascal for the London leg of the RBMA's UK tour will be R&B’s most distinctive performers, Blood Orange, who will be performing at an Awful Records showcase.
Dizzee Rascal’s performance joins an already stacked line-up for Red Bull Music Academy’s UK tour which will see the likes of Jackmaster taking over a laundrette in his home town of Glasgow.
Elsewhere, there will be fireside chats with Dizzee Rascal and Kano, as well as a headline slot for Detroit’s Moodymann and studio workshops with the likes of Mumdance, Gorgon City and Shura.
The Red Bull Music Academy UK tour begins in Liverpool before heading to Glasgow, London and Leeds.
