Hardcore punk rockers Cerebal Ballsy performed Saturday with a ferocity that commanded the seemingly peaceful crowd into a mosh pit. Later in the evening, the atmosphere switched into a groovy hipster paradise for all to enjoy as Erykah Badu jammed. The next day, Janelle Monae put on a performance with enough energy to power Manhattan. The performers were awesome – all of them – but they were merely a reflection of the movement known as Afropunk and the people of it.
The crowd was multi-everything – multi-cultural, multi-colored, multi-faceted, and multi-fashioned. – [Allhiphip.com]
Here’s another set of photos from Day 2 of the 2012 Afro Punk Fest which featured a ton of great music — all for free — not to mention skateboarding and BMX competitions.
