Festival Guide: AFROPUNK Festival

Now entering its third year, AFROPUNK London have raised the game with a week-long Brixton takeover this September, featuring supergroup August Greene and DJ sets from Jazzie B and more.

The impossibly cool AFROPUNK are taking it to the next level with a full takeover of Brixton in South London on 1st -8th September 2018.  There’s live music and DJ sets aplenty, plus talks, screenings, films, fashion and loads more .

What’s AFROPUNK?

AFROPUNK are world-renowned champions of multiculturalism and diversity for people of all races, genders, colours, creeds and tastes. This year, AFROPUNK London are putting on an event like no other, taking over the whole of Brixton for one massive party you’ll never forget.

Last year’s AFROPUNK Festival London was lit AF, believe the hype:

Where’s it happening?

Scoot down the Victoria line straight to the epicentre of it all, including takeovers of TicketWeb faves O2 Academy Brixton and Electric Brixton.

Who’s Playing?

Musically, it’s a melting pot of vintage sounds and new-gen energy, with a programme spanning classic hip-hop, rap, soul, jazz, afrobeats and beyond.

Friday 7th September is a club-ready shake down as Electric Brixton host AFROPUNK mainstay, Soul II Soul’s Jazzie B, local heroes BBZ and party crew BORN N BREAD (NTS). With a very special guest still to be announced, it’s good times guaranteed.

Saturday 8th September sees a soulful, sonic journey as supergroup August Greene  (Robert Glasper, Common, Karriem Riggins) head to O2 Academy Brixton. The inimitable jazz, hip-hop and r&b collective promise magic moments drawing on decades of working with pioneering artists across the globe. 

Outside of all of this, there’s loads more to see including screenings at the Ritzy Cinema, art exhibitions, special guest speakers and workshops, plus the return of Battle of the Bands.  Keep an eye on our Twitter to keep up to date with these announcements!
