AFROPUNK FEST Brooklyn is a multi-genre music festival in the New York City borough. Born out of the documentary Afro-Punk which highlighted black punk artists around the United States, the festival has grown into a global movement.
The original festival, AFROPUNK FEST Brooklyn started in 2005 and has evolved over the years to encompass artists from a wide range of genres to augment its inclusive atmosphere.
Not limited just to music, the festival is a diverse cultural showcase, featuring film, fashion, visual arts, and skate/BMX parks, all centred around a fiercely independent DIY attitude.
