RBMA Festival New York
First they’ll take Manhattan, then they’ll take the rest! If you hadn’t already heard, Red Bull Music Academy head back to New York this month for their annual Festival, and it’s set to be filled with the rare, the wonderful, and the peculiarly ‘Empire City’ yet again. After last year’s triumph of a series, one might have wondered where they’d turn with this year’s instalment, but with the line up slated to include a conversation with film legend Spike Lee, the first ever full play through of Dizzee Rascal‘s seminal debut album, Boy In Da Corner, and the world premier of Anohni‘s live show for her highly anticipated new Hopelessness album, we needn’t have worried.
Reinforcing the New York’s unrivalled reputation as a melting pot of culture and creativity, the festival runs from 29th April – 22nd May in various venues across the Five Boroughs. If you’re going to be in New York, or just needed an excuse to get out there, you can see what’s in store HERE.
