The crowd once again gathered, in dazzling and eclectic fashion styles, at the Commodore Barry Park in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, as they’ve done for the past 12 years. Entertaining the sold-out crowd at the two days AfroPunk 2017 festival on August 26 and 27, were popular and familiar names like Solange, SZA, Micheal Kiwanuka, Unlocking the Truth, Willow Smith and Anderson Paak.

Afropunk got its start in 2005, when it was a donation only event. It’s aim then, and now has been to highlight and showcase an alternative black experience in America.

Even with tickets now ranging from 55 to 170 dollars, amid a gentrifying Brooklyn, Afropunk continues to meet its goals, and spread its counter-culture allure. The event has now extended to London, Paris, and Atlanta.
