Afropunk 2017 Sunday pics (Raphael Saadiq, Kaytranada, more)
Afropunk Festival wrapped up its 2017 edition on Sunday (8/27) with a headlining set from Raphael Saadiq, along with sets from Kaytranada, Gary Clark Jr., Michael Kiwanuka, Kevin Abstract, Dizzee Rascal, Tygapaw, NAO, Juliana Huxtable, and more. Kaytranada closed out the festival’s Gold Stage and brought out Anderson .Paak (who also played earlier in the day) to join him on “Glowed Up.” Watch video of that below. Time Out New York talked about Kaytranada’s set:
As the festival wound down Sunday night, Montreal producer Kaytranada provided strong motivation for sticking around: A low-end-heavy DJ set filled with house, disco and his own dancey hip-hop productions including Chance the Rapper’s “All Night” and “Glowed Up.” The latter, a collaboration with Anderson .Paak, was aired by both artists from their respective stages before bringing the pair together for one more go round. Judging by the dance-offs happening near the bar, they could’ve gotten away with at least one more.
We already posted one set of pictures from Sunday at Afropunk; above, find a second set.
