The official PoC Tumblr Meetup initiative‡ is set to come together again, for AFROPUNK FESTIVAL 2013!
AFROPUNK FEST is back in Brooklyn this August for another weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes. Included, over 26 of New York City’s best food trucks, a skate park free of cops on patrol and a custom bike show hosted by Brooklyn Rhapsody.
Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.
