AfroPunk 2014 expands lineup: Bad Brains (but no HR), Sharon Jones, Cro-Mags, King Britt, DJ Rashad tribute & more

Bad Brains at DeLuna Fest 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Bad Brains

As discussed, the free 2014 AfroPunk Festival is going down in Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park from August 23-24 with D’Angelo, Body Count, Trash Talk, Shabazz Palaces, Fishbone, and more. Since we last spoke, more artists have been added to the lineup including Bad Brains (with special guest handling vocal duties), Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Cro-Mags, King Britt, The Bots, a tribute to DJ Rashad (featuring Teklife’s DJ Deeon, RP Boo, J-Cush, The Era dancers and more guests) and more. Like we said, it’s free, but if you’d like to skip the line you can buy tickets.

We’re not sure yet who will be singing with Bad Brains (though it’s not HR), but maybe with Cro-Mags on the lineup John Joseph will sing like he’s done before. Both Bad Brains and Cro-Mags play the festival’s punk stage, which is curated by Sacha Jenkins, who’s in The White Mandingos with Darryl of Bad Brains and Murs. Other punk bands on the bill include Trash Talk, Body Count, and Fishbone.
