Afropunk 2015 Brooklyn lineup (Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Kelis, Danny Brown, Suicidal Tendencies, more)

Afropunk

The annual Afropunk Festival returns to NYC in 2015 from August 22-23 in Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park. The lineup includes Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Kelis, Danny Brown, Suicidal Tendencies, Kele, Thundercat, Cakes Da Killa, Goldlink, Raury, Petite Noir, Curtis Harding, Kaytranada and more. Full lineup below. The fest is also throwing the first annual Afropunk Fancy Dress Ball the day before the fest (8/21) in Commodore Barry Park to raise funds for their Afropunk Global Initiative. Grace Jones, Cakes Da Killa and MikeQ with Special Guest will perform at that.

The fest used to be free, but this year you have to buy a ticket to get in. And they’re also introducing a more affordable earned ticket program, which “will work closely with partners to provide low barrier volunteer activities and projects for youth to complete in exchange for a ticket to the festival. The volunteer program will create awareness for organizations in need, provide access to an engaged pool of valuable resources and help deliver a sustainable impact to communities. Sample projects include landscaping (beautification, painting), packing supplies (meal prep, serving) and advocacy via social promotion.” Tickets go on sale Wednesday (6/3).

UPDATE: As a commenter points out, you can get tickets on presale now using the password = 2015.

There’s also a TBA Afropunk Fest in Atlanta’s Central Park happening this year on October 3 and 4.
