With headliners like Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill and Kelis how can you go wrong? This year Afropunk is also doing a few things differently.
There will be an Afropunk Fancy Dress Ball on August 21. The ball is a fundraiser for the Afropunk Global Initiative, “an alliance dedicated to moving the needle of progress closer to a holistic, democratic and enlightened representation of people of color within all facets of society.” Celebrities such as Grace Jones and others will be in attendance.
Afropunk has also come up with a way for people to earn tickets. Potential festival attendees have the opportunity to join the “Afropunk Army,” and earn a free ticket to the festival by engaging in community service acts and bettering their communities. Projects range from homeless outreach to taking photos symbolizing #NoHate. [Side note: this initiative is genius and quite noble!]
On top of great music there will also be over 25 food vendors, art displays, and a market place to buy apparel, art, and beauty products.
Will you be attending Afropunk’s 2015 NYC Festival? The festival is from August 21-August 23 in Brooklyn, NY’s Commodore Barry Park aka City Park.
