Last year, no summer music festival blew us away like Afropunk Brooklyn. The fest's combination of DIY vibes and focused, expert booking helped it avoid the bland, generic atmosphere of some bigger festivals. This year's lineup seems similarly promising—any chance to see soul conjurer Eykah Badu is not to be missed. Paired with Tyler the Creator (the artist behind one of our favorite albums of 2017), Miguel, Janelle Monae and The Internet, to name a few, it should be one of the summer's best weekends. The festival happens at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park on August 25 and 26.
The lineup has recently been filled out with the addition of production mastermind Kaytranada (a highlight of the 2017 edition), as well as DJs including Theo Parrish, Just Blaze, Honey Dijon and Josey Rebelle. Check out the full cast of acts below.
Tickets are on sale now from Afropunk or via Time Out. Check out the full lineup below.
