The 2012 Afro-Punk Festival is returning to Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park on August 25-26 at Commodore Berry Park in Brooklyn. The initial line-up includes Erykah Badu, Gym Class Heroes, Janelle Monae, Das Racist, Skindred, Toro Y Moi, Reggie Watts, Spank Rock, Ninjasonik, The Memorials, Bad Rabbits, Gordon Voidwell, The London Souls, Cerebral Ballzy, Phony People, and Body Language, with more to be announced. The Afropunk Festival is free and open to the public.

Additionally, the fest, now in its eighth year, will also feature “the largest street skate and BMX competition in NYC will return this year with the nation’s top amateur skaters and BMX riders in a competition to be judged by top professionals in both sports.” Last year’s Afro-Punk Fest was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. Let’s hope for better weather this year.
