The second Afropunk London took place in the capital city recently, held at the expansive and futuristic performance space – Printworks in south east London.
Over two days an array of artists, fashion designers, jewellery makers and a willing audience converged to celebrate black culture in all its variation, as well as stay true to the Afropunk philosophy of celebrating diversity for all people of all races, genders, creeds and tastes.
With a strong musical line up set across two stages, highlights included performances from Liz Simz, Corinne Bailey Rae, Nao, Willow Smith, JME and Lianne La Havas.
In true Afropunk fashion, the other major star of the festival was the audience, who didn’t disappoint with a variation of vibrant clothing, soft fluffy ‘fros, Fulani braids, tribal art makeup and waist skimming colourful braids. Until next year, Afropunk.
