AFROPUNK is a global movement, exploring all aspects of Black culture with events across multiple states and continents, but Brooklyn remains its home. Celebrating great music and vibrant culture in its home borough once again.
AFROPUNK BROOKLYN recruits two brand new headliners: iconic R&B singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan makes her AFROPUNK headliner debut, where she will flex her astounding vocal muscles and perform music from her award-winning project Heaux Tales, while game-changing producer Flying Lotus will bring his cosmic live show to the historic waterfront. With additional performances from some of the most vital artists in music today.
In addition to this year’s masterful headliners, AFROPUNK BROOKLYN 2023 promises a lineup full of some of the most vital artists in music today. The lineup runs a wide range of styles, welcoming Hip-Hop artists including Brooklyn’s own Joey Bada$$, as well as Vince Staples, Toby Nwigwe, and Baby Tate, acclaimed jazz singler Madison McFerrin, NY rap vets the Beatnuts, trailblazing singers like Sudan Archives, Durand Bernarr, Dreamer Isioma, and the Brooklyn-born Iniko, South African amapiano producer DBN Gogo, and many, many more.
This year, AFROPUNK BROOKLYN debuts a brand new venue: Greenpoint Terminal Market. Located on the banks of the East River, with unbeatable views of the Manhattan skyline, Greenpoint Terminal Market provides a picturesque location for the performances and trademark AFROPUNK activations, including the Spinthrift Market and AFROPUNK’s Bites ‘n Beats. AFROPUNK plans to transform the space, adding lawns, trees, and other shade structures to allow for a soothing and soulful day outside.
This year’s Brooklyn event will introduce a new theme–CIRCUS OF SOUL–transforming the riverside blacktop into a carnivalesque exhibition that spotlights all aspects of Black creativity, soundtracked by music that speaks to the heart of the Black experience.
