So, in addition to URB Alt 2010, Afro-punk is also happening in June. Wow. Two-and-a-half days of music, skating and BMX biking.
Here's the music lineup on Saturday, June 26:
- Bad Brains, Game Rebellion, P.O.S., Ninjasonik, Belikos, Activator, The 54, Cipher
The lineup for Sunday, June 27:
- 24-7 Spyz, The Cool Kids, J*DaVeY,
Street Sweeper Social Club, Martin Luther, The
Memorials, Bad Rabbits
Both days, the music runs from 1pm – 9pm. This year, the festival takes place at Commodore Barry Park, not Fort Greene Park as it's been in years past.
Tickets need to be purchased here. Single day passes are $20.
More info on the NYC show is here. I've heard that there are plans to take the fest to Atlanta and Chicago later this summer. Stay tuned.
