Afropunk to move to Brixton for its next London edition

Afropunk London 2017

Afropunk London will be moving from its former home at Printworks this year, instead opting to expand across multiple venues in Brixton on 1-8 September.

Celebrating blackness, creativity and unity in music, Afropunk London will stage a takeover of the south London hub for their third instalment. An extended week-long programme will host a series of multidisciplinary events and exhibitions, spanning from art to fashion, film, music, education and more.

Musically, the programme will stretch from classic hip-hop to rap, soul, jazz, Afrobeats and beyond. Thoughtful curation for the succession of events will see an art exhibition take place at 198 Gallery, as well as performances from American supergroup August Greene at the O2 Academy, DJ sets from Jazzie B, Born N Bread, the BBZ collective and more.

Furthermore, Afropunk will host a selection of talks covering a range of topics, from mental health to gender, entrepreneurship and more. BBZ and gal-dem will be on board to discuss LGBTQIA topics, and additionally, there’ll be workshops and film screenings on site.

The events will take place in various local art venues including The Ritzy, Pop Brixton, Black Cultural Archives, 198 Gallery, Electric Brixton, O2 Academy Brixton and the Department Store.
