Afropunk Festival Tickets
Afropunk Festival TicketsThe Afropunk Festival is an annual festival that is designed to showcase art, fashion, food and music by African American designers, artists and musicians. The successful festival has been running since 2005 and has grown to be one of the biggest events of its kind. Originally, the event was designed to showcase African-American musicians in the rock scene. Since its beginnings, the event has expanded to include performances by artists from all genres of music. The event has also spread to multiple cities around the US and internationally in recent years thanks to its success in New York City.
The History of AfropunkThe inspiration for Afropunk came from the documentary "Afro-punk" which showcased black punk rock artists in the US. This inspired the event organizers to create an event that would showcase these kinds of artists all in one place. For the first three years, the festival was free and held in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. New management took over in 2009 and sought to expand the event, leading to what is today a 60,000-person event that is held over multiple days at Commodore Perry Park in Brooklyn, N.Y. The event is now also held in other cities, including Johannesburg, South Africa, London, England, Paris, France, and Atlanta, Ga.
