Erykah Badu, N.E.R.D, Janelle Monae, Tyler, The Creator, The Internet and More Announced for Afropunk’s Brooklyn and Atlanta Festivals

Afropunk did not come to play with any of this year and not only is everyone ready to go, but we’re ready to go to both the Brooklyn and Atlanta festivals. Held in Commodore Barry Park in NYC’s county of Kings, “The People’s Resist” themed festivities are going down August 25th and 26th. In artistic, “statement of purpose” style format, Afropunk’s organizers declared, “We, the people who have lived under the thumb of white supremacy, gender inequality, homophobia, environmental rape and economic apartheid have always known that when the world is an outrage, the sensible thing to do is defy it. Resistance is survival, not just a hashtag. But if it’s going to be a social media call to political arms, let’s make that fucker count!” Goers can expect to see performances from Erykah Badu, Tyler, The Creator, Janelle Monáe, The Internet, Willow and Jaden Smith, Smino, H.E.R., Daniel Caesar, Miguel, Jamila Woods, Lion Babe and many more.

Afropunk’s “Carnival of Consciousness” will make its way to Atlanta October 13th and 14th to take over at 787 Windsor Complex. N.E.R.D, The Internet, Noname, Little Simz, Kari Faux and more will take the stage with additional special guests to be announced.
