AFROPUNK began as a platform for underground artists to get their voices and messages heard, based on the musical aesthetic of a generation of counter-cultural Black youth and other youth of color. Traveling from Brooklyn, to London, to Paris––the festival has attracted artists across genre, further raising the caliber of artistry and shaping the brand to its fullest capacity.

With musicians like D’Angelo, SZA, and the queen Grace Jones herself joining the movement, AFROPUNK has grown in influence and power over the years.
