Afropunk 2013

Afropunk Festival's lineup expands with the addition of Living Colour (25th anniversary show), White Mandingos (Daryl from Bad Brains, MURS), Wicked Wisdom (featuring Jada Pinkett Smith, yes, that one) and Pyyramids to their lineup already included Chuck D, DEATH, Trash Talk, Danny Brown, Saul Williams, Theophilus London, The Coup, Big Freedia, LE1F and more. It all goes down at Commodore Barry Park on August 24 & 25 from 12PM to 9PM and is totally and completely free with RSVP.

As with many free things, lines can be a hassle to get into. You can avoid the line with a Fast Pass, available by donating to the free festival in various increments ($25, $50 with a T-Shirt, $75 with a Tee and DVD).
