AFROPUNK Fest is an all accommodating creative movement; in their own words “it is a safe place, a blank space to freak out in, to construct a new reality, to live your life as you see fit while making sense of the world around you.”
Seems appropriate that the theme is ‘The People Resist’!
In 2017, after years of hosting a series of conversations, concerts that basically fuck the shit out of societal norms in places like London and Paris; they brought the party down to Johannesburg for a new year’s shut down I was fantasizing about while riding a party bus. Yes, the FOMO was real.
The announcement of this year’s line-up has just been made. AFROPUNK Fest is a mix of Music, Art, and Politics and features sex-liberator MoonChild Sanelly, the American band full of 21st-century soul – The Internet and a big one for the 90s kids – PUBLIC ENEMY!
