I am super excited about attending this event next weekend! I've never attended the Afro-Punk Festival, but it definitely sounds like a great opportunity to discover some new music and otherwise dope culture. Cee-Lo, Janelle Monae, and Gym Class Heroes are all expected to perform among other artists. Here's the scoop.
Who: Black Urbanites, punks, and punk lovers
What: Festival featuring the dopest musical performances, bike shows, skate & BMX competitions and most importantly FOOD TRUCKS! Woot!
When: Saturday, August 27th and Sunday, August 28th from 11am-7:30 pm
Why: "Afro-Punk is a cultural movement celebrating the creativity and freedom of spirit in alternative Black culture. For urban kids who once felt like outsiders are the core of this fast-growing community."
Where: Commodore Barry Park Brooklyn, NY
How: Check out the line-up and attend! It's free. Seems most of the shows are in the evenings on both nights. See you there!
