After two long years in absence, AFROPUNK finally made its return to the home ground of Brooklyn. On the weekend of 10-11 September, Brooklyn once again became the epicenter for people looking to express themselves through fashion, body art, hair, and music. Over the years, the AFROPUNK community has become a symbol of inclusion, and freedom of expression.
On the return to Brooklyn, AFROPUNK brought a constellation of the most exciting artists in modern music to Commodore Barry Park. Featuring The Roots, Burna Boy, Isaiah Rashad, Lucky Daye, Freddie Gibbs, Earl Sweatshirt, Tierra Whack, Adekunle Gold, SPINALL, Mick Jenkins, Fana Hues, BbyMutha, Bartees Strange, and many more.
AFROPUNK is more than a festival, it’s a celebration of life, music, food, and culture in the Black community. As always, AFROPUNK offered an exciting array of unique activations to entertain and enlighten attendees between sets. The usual festival touchpoints such as the Spinthrift Market, and Bites n Beats, attracted an array of entrepreneurs from Brooklyn.
Today we look at the amazing crowds of AFROPUNK Brooklyn.
