Afro-Punk Festival 2010: Lineup + Dates

Afropunk Festival 2010

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.

    I really looking forward to this show. Mos Def, God Forbid, and K-os will be there. Bad Brains is one of my all time favorite bands and I know they will play a good show.
