Now entering its third year, AFROPUNK London has evolved with a community focus. This September 1st – 8th, AFROPUNK returns, descending on South London’s eclectic hub, steeped in rich history and effervescent with diversity in cultures – BRIXTON.

Back for it’s third outing, AFROPUNK London’s week long programme spans art, fashion, film, music, education and more. Expand your mind and feast your ears and eyes with a whirlwind of inspiring offerings. An art exhibition at 198 Gallery, performances from revered supergroup, August Greene (Robert Glasper, Common, Karriem Riggins), plus DJ sets from Jazzie B, BBZ collective, BORN N BREAD and more are just a few of the events in-store.

There’s a whole host of talks, workshops, music and film screenings still to be announced. Plus, there’ll be food, art, style and the return of Battle of the Bands. Keep your eyes peeled for the major bill still to come.
