Musica Copa returns: Red Bull team captain Q&A

In the lead up to a bigger and better Musica Copa we’ve gone one-on-one with in-it-to-win-it Red Bull Music Academy skipper and Real Madrid fan Govind Sandhu.

After the huge success of last year’s inaugural event, version two takes place at Marrickville’s KIKOFF centre at Fraser Park on December 5, 2014.

To cope with demand, the tournament has expanded to 16 teams and switched to a more crowd-friendly Friday evening format.

This year organisers are also offering the chance for two lucky winners to hang out with the stars, joining in for a full day of behind the scenes footy, music and beers, plus some amazing merchandise, festival tickets, headphones and more.
