Red Bull Music Odyssey will continue on dry land with an after party bringing all scenes together under one roof. Tickets are available as a £10 add-on when purchased with Red Bull Music Odyssey tickets. Full line up and location to be announced at a later date.

From the Dixieland Jazz Band’s 1919 arrival to the UK from the States by steamship, to pirate radio’s offshore beginnings, the UK’s music scene had a long-standing relationship with the water. Now, Red Bull Music Odyssey is ready to make waves by introducing the world to new artists and shining a spotlight on the scenes the UK calls its own. Taking local scenes to global audiences, each boat will be broadcast live on Red Bull Radio. While Chal Ravens will be hosting a curated live broadcast featuring highlights from across the 50+ artists involved in this unique event.
