Afro-punk Festival 2011 Cancelled for This Weekend

Afro-punk Family, though we have tried everything in our power to maintain the dates of the Afro-punk festival this weekend despite the expected hurricane, after numerous meetings with the city, parks department, our sponsors and countless others, we are unable to move forward with the festival this weekend. The expected inclimate weather poses a great safety risk for all participating/attending, and subsequently we have been instructed to cancel the outdoor festival.
Our ENTIRE team has been working tirelessly around the clock, meeting with authorities, partners and sponsors to avoid cancelation. Thank you and we will get back to you with our plans to reschedule.

You should have come here in Bayonne, french Basque country for our Black & Basque festival, this week end, it was gorgeous. We had DJ sets and live performances, graphics exhibition, films... The soul train was very convivial on Sunday with Sahar Bahar. Next year, it will be bigger of course. we had no weather problems, big sun, shade...even to hot... niark niark ;-)
