Afropunk has announced the lineup for this year’s festival, set to take place August 27-28 at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park. This years installment of the annual festival, which has recently expanded to Atlanta and Paris, will feature Ice Cube, Tyler the Creator, TV On The Radio, Janelle Monáe, Flying Lotus, the Internet, and Cee Lo Green, among others.
The lineup also touts “Superjam” which appears to be a new project featuring members of Bad Brains, Fishbone, and Living Colour.
The theme for this years festival is “POWER TO THE PARTY.” A press release from Afropunk gave the following details:
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.
