AFROPUNK Festival is happening this weekend, and this year’s theme is “Power To The Party.”

Known for its multicultural approach to celebrating art and diversity in the Black space, AFROPUNK’s going on its 12th year of empowerment. This year, its curators want you to “feel its power.”

From AFROPUNK:

“Power, it’s a feeling, it’s an energy, it’s the undisputed connection between cause and effect — the best of us give it away, the worst usurp it, but living modern life to the fullest, means either mastering your relationship to it or walking in its shadow. We are not blind.

Party is an oxymoron, it’s a gathering of many for a shared purpose and it’s also an outcast individual, it’s a lively social occasion as well as a gang — and the story of any party is never over, because like naked cities and the metaphysical “I”, there’s always another take.

Power To The Party means trusting the friction, the transference of great capacity to the free spirit, belief in the high-heeled spark of the assembly, and the group-mind’s ability to choose a glorious path. This isn’t about getting elected, or being protected; it’s about staking a claim.”

From the legendary George Clinton to Janelle Monáe, here’s the schedule of all you can expect to light sh*t up on August 27 and 28 at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park.
