Many Academy alumni have gone on to become true innovators of their scenes like LA soul singer Aloe Blacc (“I Need A Dollar”); experimental electronic music producer Flying Lotus, currently collaborating with Odd Future and Thom Yorke; Katy B, who’s credited with introducing the sound of London’s dubstep and garage scene to the pop mainstream; and both members of TNGHT: Hudson Mohakwe, signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. empire, and Quebecian beatsmith Lunice.

About EDF Energy London Eye

The EDF Energy London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the river Thames opposite Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. At 135m, the EDF Energy London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel; a feat of design and engineering it has become the modern symbol representing the capital and a global icon. The experience showcases breathtaking 360 degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade. The constant and graceful movement of the London Eye gives visitors an ever changing perspective of the best city in the world enhanced by interactive Samsung Galaxy Tab guides to assist guests with information on landmarks in several languages.

About Wings for Life

All proceeds from Red Bull Revolutions In Sound are donated to Wings for Life.

Wings for Life was founded in 2004 by Red Bull CEO Dietrich Mateschitz and the two-time motocross world champion Heinz Kinigadner after Heinz’s son Hannes suffered a spinal cord injury during a motocross race for charity. 

Moved by Hannes’ dreadful injury, Mateschitz and Kinigadner set up the charity to fund cutting-edge research projects and clinical trials across the globe aimed at accelerating progress towards a cure for spinal cord injury. 

Since Wings for Life was first founded, 82 spinal cord research projects have been funded at the world’s most well-respected institutes and a number of vital breakthroughs have been made. The next major step will be to translate this research into clinical studies that ultimately lead to treatments for spinal cord injury.

The developments so far provide strong hope that treatment options are closer than they have ever been. However, intensive research work will be needed before a breakthrough in human medicine can be achieved. 

When you support Wings for Life, 100% of the money you donate will go to directly to spinal cord injury research as Red Bull Company generously cover all of the charity’s administrative costs. As such, 100% of the donations from Red Bull Revolutions In Sound will be spent on cutting-edge spinal research and prioritised for projects based in the UK. For example, Wings for Life UK fund projects at the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford aimed at stimulating regeneration and repair in the spinal cord.
