The fest commences at Commodore Barry Park on Saturday August 23rd and Sunday August 24th in Brooklyn, NY. On its 10th year anniversary, AFROPUNK FEST is in effect stronger and with more style than ever. AFROPUNK Fest features 4 stages of music including the more traditional heavy/punk Black Stage and Speaker's corner where the politically minded can speak theirs, a slew of Food Trucks making a variety of cuisine, the Spin Thrift Market with it's 100 vendors selling various goods and crafts, and the ever present Art Wall where selected visual artists produce original works of art within the park grounds.

 

AFROPUNK is not a genre; it's an idea. The festival is a celebration of the all of the diverse communities populating the modern DIY landscape. Along with the music, attendees will be in the presence of pop-up shops, skaters, food trucks, performance artists and future runway models all accelerating/shifting culture and style right before your very eyes, in one unique setting. A look around AFROPUNK FEST will give credence as to why the New York Times described it as "the most multicultural festival in the US".

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to go either. Not enough ducats. I would have hopped there to see Meshell Ndegeocello, clipping., Shabazz Palaces, Gordon Voidwell...hell, the bill is jam packed with winners, I'll admit. I hope everyone else enjoys it, though. :-)
