Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones and Lauryn Hill are amongst the acts scheduled to play this year’s Afropunk Festival, which is being held from August 22-23 at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park. You can view the full lineup below.
Although tickets to the festival were free last year, due to the amount of attendees last year’s event saw (60,000), tickets for this year’s event can either be purchased or can be attained through an earned ticket program called Afropunk Army. Through the Afropunk Army, people can volunteer in exchange for a ticket. Such volunteer projects include landscaping (beautification, painting), packing supplies (meal prep, serving) and advocacy via social promotion.
Both paid and earned tickets will be available starting June 3. However, tickets are available to purchase here now, by using the presale password "2015" (via BrooklynVegan).
Additionally, Afropunk Festival will be bringing the two-day festival to Atlanta’s Central Park from October 3-4. The lineup for that event is yet to be announced.
The following acts will be playing this year’s Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn:
