AFROPUNK FESTIVAL COMES TO LONDON
AfroPunk began in Brooklyn, New York in 2005, in a place so diversely multicultural, like London that it’s no surprise AfroPunk descended into the UK. Taking place at one of the most groundbreaking event spaces in Surrey Quays, linking 6,000 link minded ravers, The New York Times hailed Afropunk Brooklyn as “the most multicultural festivals in the US, with a mix of music, arts and politics.” I’m not all that into politics but the festival does reflect the current situation that young Americans’ and Brits are facing. With Brexit and the ruling under a farce of a President in Trump, young adults are breaking away from the generations afraid of positive change.
We’ll be rallying up the good vibes on the 22nd and 23rd July, with a day of live music, street vendors and you never know, maybe Jeremy Corbyn will join us for a set. We can’t promise that he’ll show up but we can confirm that NAO, JME, Nadia Rose, Clara Amfo, Jamz Supernova, Little Simz, Kojey Radical and Lianne La Havas will be those amongst the metal city of Printworks London.
Tickets start from £45 for day tickets and £90 for weekend tickets: http://afropunkfest.com/london/tickets/
