Hudson Mohawke, Tim Hecker, Regis, and Many More Announced for Red Bull Music Academy's First New York Festival
- Words: Patric Fallon
Just last month, we were alerted to Red Bull Music Academy's plans to inaugurate an annual music and arts festival in New York this year, and we now have the full details of what that star-studded, month-long series will entail. Taking place sporadically throughout the month of May, RBMA NYC 2014 is set to offer a widespread selection of international artists performing across a number of unique and simply downright top-notch events.
Among the special happenings planned throughout New York are a tribute to William Onyeabor with David Byrne, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, and many others; DJ sets at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair from Optimo, Autre Ne Veut, Regis and Silent Servant as Sandra Electronics, and more; an all-night DJ set from Running Back boss Gerd Janson; a special Mister Saturday Night house party; and a closing night on May 31 with 15 RBMA alumni—including Nightwave, Anenon, Robot Koch, and Yosi Horikawa, among others. Other artists set to perform throughout RBMA's extended festival include the likes of MikeQ, house icon Todd Terry, Tri Angle affiliate The Haxan Cloak, NYC mainstay Francois K, Tim Hecker, Regis, Panda Bear, breakout Glaswegian beatmaker Hudson Mohawke (pictured above), the Lit City Trax crew, and many more.
