Two years ago we created a unique, exclusive property for Red Bull to engage with and support the best emerging creatives around the country. Each year the location, program and guest list is completely unique. Curated around a theme that is deeply contextual to time and place.

Frontiers 2017 took place in Clarksdale MS, birthplace of the Delta Blues, and explored creativity within constraints. Guests received individually recorded cassette tapes and players that invited them to attend without revealing the location. They were simply given dates and told when to show up at the airport.

The Frontiers' pirate radio station, helmed by alum DJ Dave Mata, broadcast around the property and to old radios placed in everyone's "hotel" room. The programming was an exploration of the Delta Blues and its vast influence. After performing, musical collaborators joined us on air from the "radio shack".

The meals and drinks were created through partnerships with award winning local chefs and beverage directors. The location for each meal was specifically picked to inspire and provoke interesting conversations/collaborations.

Guest speakers and artists who were deeply connected to the theme performed each day including Aja Monet, Dave Archambault and blues/soul masters Fantastic Negrito and Charles Bradley.

Attendees received a custom designed jacket with a crossroads on the back referencing the place where Robert Johnson allegedly sold his soul for the ability to play the blues.

After three days of conversations, collaborations, shared meals, music performances and customized interactions -- guests were asked to imagine the ways they could transform the creative fabric of their cities through their work and passions.
