Biggies like Governors Ball have already come and gone, but the NYC summer-festivals schedule continues to surge. Take Afropunk Fest, for example, held every August at Fort Greene's Commodore Barry Park. Last year, the genre-spanning event snagged a killer headliner in D'Angelo, and the already-stacked 2015 lineup—featuring Grace Jones, Lenny Kravitz, Danny Brown and a bunch more—just grew significantly more awesome with the late-breaking additions of neosoul queen Ms. Lauryn Hill, noise-rap masterminds Death Grips and bluesy shredder-crooner Gary Clark Jr. You know you want to be there, so go here for ticket info.
