April 21, 2022

Lace-up your space boots and hop in—we’re going galactic at the Planet AFROPUNK Miami! With this first-ever live experience, Planet AFROPUNK Miami is kicking off May at the historic Overtown neighborhood, The Urban. AFROPUNK aims to connect the African diaspora through a combo of food, dance, tech, art, and discussions so that you’ll witness the beauty of diverse communities engaging and connecting through commonalities. With three jam-packed days of live performances, pulsating cultural experiences, and hella vibes, you won’t want to miss the incredible action.

We’ll kick off AFROPUNK Miami with an engaging panel of experts who will walk you through essential and thought-provoking discussions of our current times. You’ll explore themes like justice, equality, acceptance, how to cultivate peace, and more to hear others and even share your voice. 

Live performances

After your thoughts flow at Ideaville, head into the next two days with your stamina and Meg knees because the live music will be in heavy rotation! From BAMBII, YENDRY, Pretyboy D-O, and ChocQuibTown, the talent will be epic. Jamaican American DJ, MC, and record producer WalshyFire from reggae-inspired group Major Lazer will also be blessing us with his spins and talent! This event is an unbelievable opportunity to experience the arts through music, creation, discussion, and how technology is tying it all together.
