AFROPUNK 2015

August 22nd-23rd was AFROPUNK festival and I am in LOVE. I’ve never even heard of it before but I’ve seen pictures popping up all over Instagram and wanted to know more. Have I been living under a rock?!

The New York Times describes it as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open minded, non conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music.

I’ve just collate some images from Instagram (all are tagged none are my own) for you lot to see what its all about. I would love to go because it looks awesome!
