Afropunk is an annual music festival in Brooklyn that celebrates “alternative” music in African American culture. If you want to know who is going to blow up in the next year, you should go to Afropunk. The headliners include the glorious return of D’Angelo, Meshell Ndegeocello, Alice Smith (one of my favorite artists of the year), and SZA.

Afropunk takes place on August 23rd through August 24th in Brooklyn’s Commodore Park.

Electric Zoo has become infamous for good and bad reasons. While having an incredible group of headliners every year,  this 3 day festival has been plagued by heavy drug use (specifically MDMA aka “Molly”), which led to the unfortunate deaths of two concertgoers in 2013. In response to this, Electric Zoo is implementing more safety measures to make the concert a safer experience for everyone. Some of the headliners this year include Dada Life, Dimitiri Vegas & Like Mike, Destroid, ZEDD, Knife Party and SOOOO many more.

Electric Zoo is in New York City’s Randall’s Island Park. The fun starts on August 29th and continues until August 30th.

 

I’ll see you in the pit!
