AFROPUNK FESTIVAL 2013 at Brooklyn NY


afropunk banner

I had an awesome weekend at afropunk hanging out with friends and enjoying some great music. Going on its 10th year, Afropunk has brought a mixture of punk attitude and African-American culture to Brooklyn. Afropunk Fest rocks out at the Fort Greene’s Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn the weekend of Aug. 24 and Aug. 25. Bringing together urban culture and live music, such as  rap luminaries like Chuck D and Questlove, bands like Trash Talk and Pryamids, and emerging hip-hop artists like Danny Brown and Theophilus London. In addition, there will be  food trucks, a skate park, and a custom bike show hosted by Brooklyn Rhapsody. Afropunk Fest is geared toward those who enjoy coming together for one weekend to celebrate unconventional art in all forms. Check out some of the most interesting hairstyles (thick dreads, detailed high-top fades) and clothing (skillfully tattered tops, crazy prints) the weekend had to offer.

  1. I would love to go to something like this! It looks like a great time! I love Jada Pinkett Smith’s band! She’s a great artist. I’ll have to put it on my bucket list to go to in the future! My husband would probably like it too!
