Solange officially playing Afropunk; Thundercat adds 2nd BK Steel show
Now that her co-headlining set at NYC festival Panorama is behind her, Solange has officially been confirmed for Brooklyn's Afropunk Festival. The label she founded, Saint Heron, has a stage at the festival and the stage had a "special guest TBA," so this shouldn't be surprising, but good news nonetheless.
The Saint Heron stage also has Sampha, Thundercat, Sinkane, KING, and Shakaba and the Ancestors, and the festival also includes SZA, Macy Gray, Soul II Soul, Gary Clark Jr, Michael Kiwanuka, Dizzee Rascal, The Cool Kids, Anderson. Paak & the Free Nationals, Raphael Saadiq, Burn, Kaytranada, serpentwithfeet, and more. Tickets are still available. Updated Afropunk Brooklyn lineup below (including new addition Jorja Smith).
Solange also plays the 8/22 show of Dave Chappelle's 16-show Radio City residency. The residency begins tonight (8/1) with The Roots and Lil Wayne. Tickets for select shows (including the one with Solange) are still available.
Solange and Frank Ocean co-headlining day one of Panorama over the weekend was the perfect pairing and both sets were next level. Read our review of their sets.
