In 2022, we come even stronger, insurgent and revolutionary! AFROPUNK Bahia will continue to boost the strength and beauty of the coupling of rhythms, experiences and cultures, creating an epic event.
AFROPUNK Bahia’s quilombo is the place where our people express themselves in our diaspora trail in a radical act of self-love: forming a black circle in the blackest city outside Africa.
Circle of Samba, circle of Capoeira, Circle of Punk, and Circle of Xirê. Our circle has never stopped spinning since we got here. We will keep on spinning, breaking down borders, celebrating the gathering of generations and artistic expressions, praising the protagonists of blackness, uniting great talents to a legacy of history of fight and resistance.
Two-day event, more than 30 attractions, 26 hours long: enhancing black culture in its various manifestations, whether in fashion, beauty, entrepreneurship or gastronomy, making the circle never stop turning. Tickets on sale!

AFROPUNK Bahia 2021 – A history
Quilombo AFROPUNK Bahia” is the place where black people express themselves in the rhythm of the diaspora on a radical act of self-love: forming the “black circle”. The circle is continuity, it’s eye to eye. Making connections and seeing the magic happen. It’s visual amplitude, where everyone sees each other and nobody is better than anybody is. With the sway of the tides serving as an amplifier of voices, we transformed the Convention Center of Salvador into a grand tour of celebration of Afro-Diasporic black culture.
In AFROPUNK, the big stars are in the audience, casting their glow of beauty to the four corners of the globe. Then, the #BlackCarpet was born in Bahia: a space to exalt the different ways of expressing black beauty.
