Afropunk 2018 Sunday pics (Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Pusha T, fashion & more)
After kicking off on Saturday, the 2018 edition of Afropunk Festival wrapped up on Sunday (8/26) at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park. Erykah Badu closed out the day with a performance that began with her alone on stage, band hidden behind a sheet, wearing a huge, elaborate hat. Fellow Afropunk alumnus Janelle Monae returned to the festival with her new high energy Dirty Computer stage show, which included dancers, costumes and choreography, and was a whole lot of fun. As Vulture points out, Janelle also came back out to join Erykah in closing out the festival, and the pair sang “Bag Lady” together in the crowd. Watch video of that below.
Sunday at Afropunk also included sets from Tyler The Creator, Pusha T, Trash Talk, Denzel Curry (who was also spotted moshing with Joey Bada$$ in the crowd before Pusha T’s set), Jamila Woods and more, along with art, activism, and thousands of attendees dressed in eye-catching fashion. Check out pictures from Sunday at Afropunk in the gallery above, and catch up on the rest of the weekend with our pictures from Saturday HERE and pictures focusing on the people of the festival HERE.
The day before her Afropunk performance, Erykah Badu also appeared at Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson block party, where she paid tribute to Aretha Franklin.
