Red Bull's Music Academy Tour will be in Leeds from today (27 October) until 30 October. The four-day event will feature a photography and film exhibition on grime music, a conversation with rap artist Giggs, a perfromance from Giggs, Nadia Rose and other artists, a techno club night and a studio science lecture with singer-songwriter Shura.

During the tour's London dates, Dizzee Rascal performed his debut album 'Boy in da Corner' in full on 22 October, which he released at just 17 years old. The Copper Box Arena was at full capacity, and the rapper performed to a sold out crowd which included the likes of Lily Allen, FKA Twigs, Dev Hynes and Skepta.

The Red Bull Academy Tour UK aims to celebrate and educate within music by putting on gigs, workshops, exhibitions and lectures in UK cities. 

In August, Panasonic launched its 'Stadium of Wonders' Olympic activation.
