See Big Names, Feel the Beat at Brooklyn’s Afropunk Festival
Afropunk Festival’s tagline, “Power to the Party,” just scratches the surfaces of what a celebration this really is. The New York Times once called it “the most multicultural festival in the U.S.” This year, in addition to the stellar lineup (Ice Cube and Janelle Monae are headlining), check out the murals by Art for Amnesty, 25+ food trucks, a Spinthrift Martket with DIY-minded bespoke items, and more. Located at Commodore Barry Park, Brooklyn’s oldest park, the festival gives the hip, rapidly evolving borough the summer party it deserves.
Take your Afropunk love to the next level by purchasing a ticket to the Fancy Dress Ball, a fundraiser for the Afropunk Global Initiative to diversify media and broaden community access. Otherwise, purchase festival tickets here. The festival runs from August 27th and 28th.
