Afropunk 2018 Brooklyn & Atlanta lineups
Afropunk Festival returns to multiple cities in 2018, and the lineups for Brooklyn and Atlanta have just been announced. The theme for this year’s fest is “The People Resist, a message that brings together AFROPUNK ideology and the people who support it, in resistance to those that strive to oppress.”
Brooklyn happens August 25 & 26 in Commodore Barry Park with Erykah Badu, Tyler the Creator, Miguel, Janelle Monae, The Internet, Twin Shadow, Ibeyi, H.E.R., Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Trash Talk, Denzel Curry, Smino, Lion Babe, Jamila Woods, JPEGMAFIA, Duckwrth, Secret Circle (aka Wiki, Antwon & Lil Ugly Mane), and more, plus more TBA. Tickets are on sale now, and this year there’s “a new ticketing program called BOGO (Buy One Give One). With each BOGO GA Ticket purchase, (1) additional ticket will be provided to a New York City area youth participating in diversion programs with arts organizations like Recess Art and Young New Yorkers that create pathways to art disciplines and access to mentorship from working artists as an alternative to incarceration.” Afropunk is also bringing back its earned ticket program, where you can get a ticket to the fest in exchange for at least 8 hours of volunteer work. See the Brooklyn lineup as it currently stands, below.
