Black culture celebrated in Paris
AFROPUNK FEST Paris is a festival and cultural movement that celebrates empowerment, diversity and individuality. The European counterpart to the Brooklyn edition, the festival celebrates urban and soul music as well as visual artistry and performance.
With roots amongst the Black community and culture, AFROPUNK welcomes an array of new music and styles. The popularity of this event has resulted in an expansion that has embraced New York, Atlanta, Paris and London.
Previous acts have included Angel Haze, Lianne La Havas, Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Keziah Jones, Saul Williams, Michael Kiwanuka, Sky & Ross From Morcheeba, Leon Bridges and Lion Babe.
The Parc de la Villette is a large park on the northeastern tip of Paris.
Parc de la Villette, 211 Avenue Jean Jaurès, Paris, 75019, France
Charles de Gaulle Airport is very near to the centre of Paris, and is the closest International airport.
From there, it makes sense to buy a Paris Metro Pass for Zones 1-5, which will cost about €35 for a 1 day pass. RER B Trains run depart regularly from Terminals 1 and 2 at Charles de Gaulle, taking 25-30 minutes to reach Gare du Nord station.
Once in the city, Metro line 7 will take you to Porte de la Villette, which is just a ten minute walk from the venue.
