Meet me at the 8th annual Afro-Punk Festival
The 2012 festival line up includes Erykah Badu, Gym Class Heroes, Janelle Monae, Das Racist and more. In addition to musical performances, this festival includes the Nike Battle For the Streets Skate Competition, bike competition Brooklyn Rhapsody, and 15 of New York’s best food trucks.
Described by the New York Times as putting “rock and rebellion squarely in the category of African-American music,” the Afro-punk Festival has presented new artists before they hit it big, such as Grammy-nominated Santigold, The Noisettes and Janelle Monae. Afro-punk mainstays like Saul Williams, The Dirtbombs, and Dallas Austin have also graced Afro-punk’s stages.
