Afropunk Brooklyn takes over Fort Greene's Commodore Barry Park on August 26 and 27. The annual music and arts fest, which celebrates diversity and black culture, brings UK outfit Soul II Soul, neosoul singer Sampha, funk bassist Thundercat, producer Kaytranada (who'll be curating a stage of acts), grime MC Dizzee Rascal, blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr, singer Macy Gray, rising rapper Kevin Abstract and more. Afropunk will host a stage curated by Solange's Saint Heron label, which currently has a TBA headlining slot (though it should be noted that Solange is topping the bill at Panorama Festival in July). Expect to see more acts announced as the date approaches. Tickets are already on sale, and as has been the case in the past, you can earn a ticket by accomplishing various volunteer and advocacy tasks.

We put together a little preview to get you acquainted with some of our favorite acts playing the festival. Listen to that playlist, and find the full list of artists below.
