Full RBMA 2013 Schedule Unveiled
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The 2013 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy is set to begin soon, with the festivities officially getting underway on April 28 and running all the way until the end of May. Whilst the Academy and its class of budding music makers will be enveloped in all sorts of activities during their time in New York City, RBMA has also put together a coinciding month-long run of events and lectures, which will feature a wide range of talent that includes Flying Lotus, Brian Eno, Andy Stott, Four Tet (pictured above), Pantha Du Prince and the Bell Laboratory, Masters at Work, and many more. It would appear that the Academy's goal was to present a little something for everyone, and from the looks of it, they have succeeded. The month of shows is sprinkled with DJ sets and live performances by Blondes, Metro Area, Koreless, Objekt, Distal, Throwing Snow, Bok Bok b2b L-Vis 1990, Brenmar, Sinjin Hawke, Skream, Mala, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Laurel Halo—and that's just scratching the surface. Also scheduled are special film screenings and conversations with music industry luminaries such as Brian Eno, Erykah Badu, and James Murphy. Basically, if you're in NYC during the month of May, it appears RBMA will be keeping your nights busy. The full schedule of RBMA NYC 2013 events can be found here.
