Afropunk originated from the 2003 documentary that highlighted a Black presence in the American punk scene, and has gone on to be a platform for the alternative and experimental. At it's core are the punk principles of DIY aesthetics, radical thought and social non-conformity. Afropunk first held their music festival in Brooklyn, New York City in 2005. Last year, they united 95,000 people across their festivals, and events in Brooklyn, Atlanta and Paris. Afropunk today is an influential community of young, gifted people of all backgrounds who speak through music, art, film, comedy, fashion and more.
Afropunk came to the UK for the first time with Power to the Party, in London's Alexandra Palace in 2016.
