Celebrating the influence of blackness in alternative and punk culture
AFROPUNK FEST London is the British edition of the famous US festival which celebrates the influence of blackness in alternative and punk culture.
The DIY movement was founded in the US by London-born Matthew Morgan, who became disillusioned with the lack of representation the black community had in American subculture. The first event attracted around 250 people and was free to attend. Since then the festival has doubled in size every year, and now attracts up to 60,000 people.
Showcasing a lineup covering a variety of musical genres reflecting African-American culture, the festival has sought to become a beacon of inclusivity and diversity across music, arts, and culture. That includes what is known as Activism Row, where social justice organisations associated with the Black Lives Matter movement showcase literature and more.
The 2019 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.
The last edition took place at Printworks: a former printing press that once churned out the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers.
Printworks, London, SE16 7PJ, United Kingdom
The nearest stations to Printworks are Canada Water (Jubilee Line and Overground) and Surrey Quays (Overground). Both stations are within a ten minute walk from the venue.
AFROPUNK FEST London is a 14+ event. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
