Red Bull Music Academy lineup: FKA Twigs, Dev Hynes, A$AP Rocky, more
The month-long Red Bull Music Academy will return to New York City in May. Like its previous installments, this year’s program will include a series of curated concerts, live interviews with artists, panel discussions, and a few unique performances. Among them: conversations with A$AP Rocky and George Clinton; a showcase from the Tri Angle Records label with performances by The Haxan Cloak and Evian Christ; a night of noise and industrial music including iconic artists Merzbow and Genesis P-Orridge; a two-night tribute to cult avant-pop artist Arthur Russell featuring Dev Hynes, Cults, and Phosphorescent; a one-night revival of the massively influential GHE20GOTH1K party; an evening with buzzy hyper-pop collective PC Music; and two special concerts by FKA Twigs with 10 backup dancers and costumes by Alexander McQueen.
A complete lineup of events and ticketing information are available at RBMA’s website.
