AFROPUNK ANNOUNCES NYC FESTIVAL LINEUP FOR AUGUST 22ND & 23RD W/ AFROPUNK ATL TO FOLLOW

AFROPUNK, the now world renowned Festival that just took place in Paris last month, has announced the lineup up for its flagship Festival, AFROPUNK Brooklyn to take place August 22nd & 23rd at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park. The 2015 AFROPUNK Festival, whose lineup includes Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Kelis, Danny Brown, Suicidal Tendencies, Thundercat, GoldLink, Kaytranada, Curtis Harding and many more (full lineup below) will be the biggest undertaking of the critically acclaimed festival yet. Preemptively AFROPUNK will be throwing their first annual AFROPUNK FANCY DRESS BALL w/ special guest Grace Jones and more TBD to raise funds for their AFROPUNK Global Initiative: an alliance dedicated to moving the needle of progress closer to a holistic, democratic and enlightened representation of people of color within all facets of society with the goal to create unique programming that encourages diversity in media. The AFROPUNK FANCY DRESS BALL will take place August 21st at Commodore Barry Park.

Due to the amount of attendees (60,000 last year) the festival has now moved to an affordable paid and earned ticket to the event to assure entry. AFROPUNK has been long known as an advocate of cultural change as well as change directly in the Brooklyn community. The earned ticket program, called AFROPUNK Army, expounds upon that giving fans the chance to volunteer for the earned ticket. AFROPUNK will work closely with partners to provide low barrier volunteer activities and projects for youth to complete in exchange for a ticket to the festival. The volunteer program will create awareness for organizations in need, provide access to an engaged pool of valuable resources and help deliver a sustainable impact to communities. Sample projects include landscaping (beautification, painting), packing supplies (meal prep, serving) and advocacy via social promotion. PAID / EARNED TICKETS AVAILABLE FROM WEDNESDAY JUNE 3RD. CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKET.

 

Additionally AFROPUNK will be bringing the 2 day festival to Atlanta’s Central Park on Saturday, October 3rd & Sunday, October 4th. You can SIGN UP HERE to receive more info as it comes and stay tuned for the AFROPUNK ATL lineup announcement coming soon.

Is Lauryn Hill really going to be there? This will be my first time attending or even coming to New York from Houston.

I'm so glad about AfroPunk ATL. I got family there and that's less strenuous logistics wise.

Oh duh, lol. I see. Go to the event page and scroll down, there's a link! Wondering if there's someone who wants to host me as a couch surfer in either NY or ATL? I live in SF, CA and can reciprocate if someone is interested in visiting here...

Yes, I'd gladly volunteer for earned tickets. How does one do that?
