AFROPUNK is an influential community of young, gifted people of all backgrounds who speak through music, art, film, comedy, fashion and more. Originating with the 2003 documentary that highlighted a Black presence in the American punk scene, it is a platform for the alternative and experimental. Remaining at the core of its mission are the punk principles of DIY aesthetics, radical thought and social non-conformity. AFROPUNK is a voice for the unwritten, unwelcome and unheard-of.
The AFROPUNK Festival returns to Brooklyn for the 10th year for a weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes, including talents such as D’Angelo, Lianne La Havas, Body Count, Trash Talk, and Meshell Ndegeocello.
