UPDATE: find a second set of pictures from Saturday at Afropunk HERE.

Absolutely perfect weather and an incredible lineup made for a great start to Afropunk Fest 2017, which saw performances on Saturday )8/26) from Solange, SZA, Sampha, Soul II Soul, Princess Nokia, Thundercat, Macy Gray, B L A C K I E, Sinkane and tons more in Brooklyn’sCommodore Barry Park. Afropunk has also garnered a reputation as a place to see and be seen, and there was amazing fashion on display Saturday as well, that often incorporated activism (another big part of the fest). Check out this gallery featuring a lot of the people of Afropunk, and some of the music that was happening on Saturday, above. Stay tuned for lots more pics of Saturday’s performers. UPDATE: more pictures from Saturday HERE.
