As the Spring weather begins to bloom, Red Bull Music Academy breezes by with the timely announcement of their third annual festival.

Holding NYC hostage for one month, beginning April 29 through May 22, the third annual extravaganza includes everything from a DJ night featuring Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and Zaytoven (April 30) to performances from Kamasi Washington, Pharaoh Sanders and the Sun Ra Arkestra (May 8), as well as a guest lecture featuring the one and only Spike Lee (May 2).

Additional notable events include the premiere of "Kiki," a film by Sara Jordan and Twiggy Pucci Garçon (April 29) and the return of the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair (May 14), a hub where fans will be able to shop directly from over 50 independent labels.
