    ANOHNI, Kamasi Washington, Dizzee Rascal, Spike Lee and a host of other artists will be featured at the fourth installment of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York. The series of performances, lectures, and workshops is set to begin April 29th and run through May 22nd.

    The initial announcement of the slate of events includes "A Conversation With Spike Lee," where the film director will speak with Nelson George about musical moments in his films at the SVA Theatre in Manhattan; "Dizzee Rascal: Boy In Da Corner Live," which will have the rapper performing the album in its entirety; "Kamasi Washington, Pharoah Sanders, & Sun Ra Arkestra," where these three jazz trailblazers will join each other on stage for a night of "spiritual jazz;" and ANOHNI will also premiere her new album HOPELESSNESS at the Park Avenue Armory on May 18th-19th.

    The final night of the festival will feature "Last Night A DJ Saved My Soul," which takes it name from the Red Bull Music Academy's daily article. According to the festival website, the show "brings together artists saving souls on and off the dancefloor through a unique synthesis of transcendent music and transportive messages."

    According to Red Bull Music Academy's official website, "The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year."
