AFROPUNK is back in Brooklyn this August for another weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes.
Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.
Adamant in promoting diversity, the festival stage is always studded with music’s most distinct acts. Rivaling those of the past, last years line-up featured New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia, NYC’s downtown darling Mykki Blanco and festival veteran Saul Williams. Other notables were, blues-infused up-and-comers Vintage Trouble from Los Angeles and The Heavy from the UK, and hardcore punk band Trash Talk from Sacramento. Even Brooklyn’s own metal prodigies Unlocking the Truth and 2013 Battle of the Bands winners Meatloaf Muzik hit the stage. This isn’t to mention hip-hop heavyweights Danny Brown, Jean Grae and Chuck D—just a few more who held it down.
Come to AFROPUNK 2014 this summer and sweat, mosh, and shout. Feel the music, free your mind, join the movement.
