What: AfroPunk 2011 Festival
When: August 27th – 28th
Where: Commodore Barry Park
I’ve never been able to make it to one of the festivals even though I’ve lived in Clinton Hill for the past 3.5 years. There’s always been a time conflict or I simply just missed the boat. Last year, the promoters decided to charge and that almost killed the show’s attendance. This year however, it’s back to being FREE, y’all. The line-up looks sick and I’ll actually be in town for this before I head out to Europe for 2.5 months. Here’s the line up, courtesy of the AfroPunk site:
Cee Lo Green, Janelle Monae, Fishbone, Santigold, Jay Electronica, Toro Y Moi, Res, Joi, Toshi Reagon, Ninjasonik, Cerebral Ballzy, Straight Line Stitch, Gordon Voidwell, Reggie Watts, Joe Jordans Experiment, Rocky Business
They’ll also have a BMX competition, food truck festival, a custom bike show and a skate artist wall. Now…who’s ready to come with me?
