Kicking off on 28th April for a month-long takeover, the world-renowned Red Bull Music Academy touches down in New York for its 15th edition, with an unprecedented series of 34 unique shows celebrating music across genres and generations. The event programme, which complements the two terms of daytime workshops and lectures for the Academy’s 2013 intake of participants, will stand up as the biggest and broadest yet.
Ahead of the opening of the first term on Sunday 28th April, Red Bull UK waves off the seven departing Brits, namely Alitrec, Benjamin Damage, Evian Christ, Koreless, Rudi Zygadlo, Throwing Snow and T.Williams at The New York Departure Lounge – an intimate launch party at Red Bull Studios London. As they set off for their term at the Academy, during which they'll get to take in lectures and events from the likes of Brian Eno, Giorgio Moroder and James Murphy join us for a celebration of all things NY.
The night features a headline set and UK debut from Brooklyn rappers Flatbush Zombies. The Zombies made their arrival known with their first video – a twisted vision involving piles of waffles, bowls of marijuana and gold fangs galore. From that moment it was pretty clear that Juice, Meech and Erick Arc Elliott are a group of guys that don’t seem to take themselves too seriously. Strap in for their first show on UK soil, giving the participants a very New York showcase as they prepare to take flight.
