Afropunk Fest announces 2016 set times

afropunk

Afropunk returns Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park this weekend (Aug 27-28) for its 12th annual festival, and its official schedule has been released. Check out the full set times below, and a few artist we’re especially excited to see, HERE.

As always, trying to catch all the great performances happening simultaneously is sure to be a challenge. Saturday will see Flying Lotus, TV on the Radio, and Tyler, the Creator playing overlapping late sets, and you’ll have to make a choice between afternoon performances by Saul Williams and Thundercat, and later George Clinton and Trash Talk. Sunday throws up such gut-wrenching oppositions as Earl Sweatshirt vs. Kelela and Janelle Monae vs. The Internet, though Ice Cube gets to close out the festival solo.

Tickets are still available.
