For 10 years, AFROPUNK
has built a community & festival with new bands. We want to give the bands within our community an opportunity to perform at the festival. To that end we came up with the 2012 "Battle of the Bands
" contest, which is an extension to the "Battle of the Bands we Fuck With" on Afropunk.com
. Two bands will be given the opportunity to open the festival this year.
