The 2014 Afropunk Festival, which takes place August 23-24 at Commodore Park in Brooklyn, already sounded amazing. D’Angelo headlining a four-stage festival featuring the likes of Shabazz Palaces and clipping.? For free? Shut the hell up!
Lo and behold, it looks like the great just got greater. Afropunk has added a bevy of bomb talent to their 2014 line-up, including Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Bad Brains (featuring special guest vocalists), King Britt, and Cro-Mags. Possibly the biggest draw for a fair amount of TMT-ers, however, is a DJ Rashad tribute show featuring members of the Teklife crew and the inimitable footwork pioneer RP Boo.
There are a host of others on the agenda for this year; head over to the Afropunk site to scope out the whole list.
