You used your voices.

“Desperately looking for 2 day pass or saturday pass”

Coming all the way from Miami and in desperate need of 2 tickets”

“Dammit my friend just had to choose saturday to get married. So selfish”

“HELP ME GET TO AFROPUNK!”

“Pls help”

“Pls”

We heard you.

We’ll be raffling away 2 pairs of weekend tickets at our Red Bull Sound Select event taking place August 15th at Baby’s All Right!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL. All you gotta do is party.

Join us for our pre festival launch party as we dance to the music of artists Leikeli47, Jojo Abot and QUIÑ.

RSVP here for $3 entrance: http://win.gs/RBSS81517

 

The Artists

Leikeli47 

Self proclaimed communicator Leikeli47 has been making major moves lately. Her infectious summer track “F*ck the Summer Up” was the musical muse for Alexander Wang’s SS16 NYFW runway show. It was also chosen by Jay Z as the title track for his inaugural TIDAL Playlist. You can find this visionary, producer, director and all around entertainer at AFROPUNK Brooklyn 2017! Check out her music video for “F*ck the Summer Up”<

 

Jojo Abot

Ghanaian artist Jojo Abot expresses her unique AFRO-HYPNO-SONIC aesthetic through music, film, photography, literature and performance art. Her ongoing project as a member of the New Museum lead incubator program, NEW INC. is titled FYFYA WOTO or New Birth-New Discovery. Currently on tour with Ms. Lauryn Hill, Abot has performed in iconic spaces like The Apollo Theater, Radio City Music Hall, and many more. She’ll be playing AFROPUNK Brooklyn 2017! Take a look at her video for  Gods Among Men + Marching (NGIWUNKULUNKULU)

 

QUIÑ

QUIÑ has described her own sound as Fantasy Soul. Her first EP, GALACTICA has earned her comparisons to Erykah Badu and Apple’s Zane Lowe has even described her as Sade 3000! QUIÑ is currently gearing up to release her second EP, DREAM GIRL which is a body of melodic sounds. Staying true to her hometown of Los Angeles, QUIÑ hopes to shine a light by celebrating individuality and refusing to shy away from her dreams and fantasies. Quin recently released her new music video with The Internet’s SYD
