On the subway, in front of our computers, at the gym, we've always got our headphones on because, without a doubt, music is the perfect companion. Perhaps less universally known is that the folks over at Red Bull happen to feel the same way. Passionately. So much so that they've created the Red Bull Music Academy, a world traveling workshop and festival that fosters collaboration, creativity, and inspiration.
Boasting exclusive workshops for sixty-two handpicked musicians from around the world as well as thirty-four open-to-the-public events around New York City, Red Bull Music Academy simultaneously celebrates talent, innovation, education, and art appreciation. And while you may not be able to get inside RBMA's new state of the art facility in Chelsea, you will be able to hear ?uestlove, Joe Lovano, Bernie Worrell and many others jamming all night long. No big deal.
Click through the slideshow for a full list of the events that Red Bull Music Academy will be hosting from Sunday, April 28 to Friday, May 31.
