The Festival returns to the city’s freshest venue – Printworks!
Afropunk has been redefining culture in the music world for over 14 years. It is a triumph of multiculturalism and diversity for people of all races, genders, colours, creeds and tastes! The global music festival looks to push the boundaries of expression and individuality!
This time, the London edition of the festival will take place on the 22nd and 23rd of July at Printworks!
The Annual Arts festival celebrates and unifies the community through music, film, skate, and art. It made it’s debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in Brooklyn, New York City in 2005, and has since culturally expanded the festival across countries. Originally co-founded by Mathew Morgan and James Spooner, the festival was inspired by Spooner’s 2003 documentary film entitled, Afro-Punk, which spotlighted black punks in America!
Some of the acts you can look forward to are Lianne La Havas, Nao, Danny Brown, Thundercat, JME, Willow Smith, The Heavy, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jazzie B, Little Simz, Jazz Re:Freshed, Nadia Rose, Kojey Radical, Connie Constance, Blacktronica, Gal-Dem , Born & Bread , and much much more.
