The Brooklyn edition of the Afropunk Festival always boasts one of the most fascinating lineups on the American landscape, and this year looks to be no exception. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, Afropunk comes to Commodore Barry Park 8/26-27, and this year’s show will feature artists like Soul II Soul, Dizzee Rascal, Willow Smith, Macy Gray, SZA, Gary Clarke Jr., the Cool Kids, serpentwithfeet, and Pure Disgust.
There will also be a few special guest-curated stages. Solange’s Saint Heron label has curated a stage, which will feature Sampha, Thundercat, Sinkane, and KING. It also promises and unnamed special guest, so you probably shouldn’t be shocked if Solange herself shows up. Kaytranada will also headline his own stage, which will also feature Nao, Sango, and J. Rocc and Karriem Riggins performing together. Also, Brooklyn Vegan claims that Mary J. Blige will perform, though the festival’s website doesn’t say anything about that.
