About the Afro Punk Festival
Described by the NY Times as putting “rock & rebellion squarely in the category of African-American music,” the Afro-punk Festival has become a Brooklyn institution, the focal point for the burgeoning Afro-punk movement. Over the past 7 years, the festival has presented new artists before they hit it big, such as Grammy-nominated Santigold, The Noisettes & Janelle Monae. Afro-punk mainstays like Saul Williams, The Dirtbombs & Dallas Austin have also graced Afro-punk’s stages.

The Afro-punk Festival is returning to Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park for its 7th edition on August 27-28 2011. This year has the most stellar line up yet with Cee Lo Green, Santigold, Janelle Monae, Fishbone, Jay Electronica, Toro Y Moi, Toshi Reagon, Ninjasonik, Cerebral Ballzy, Gordon Voidwell, Reggie Watts, Res, Joi, Rocky Business, Straight Line Stitch and more to be added! In addition, the Nike Battle For the Streets Skate and BMX Competition, the largest street skate and BMX competition in NYC will return with the nation’s top amateur skaters and BMX riders in a competition to be judged by top professionals in both sports including Nigel Sylvester and P-Rod.
