AFROPUNK 2017

October 14th and 15th 2017. Afropunk brought light love and freedom to Atlanta Georgia! 

For my 24th return I was blessed with weekend tickets to the beautiful festival (shout out to my sister and bro in law). The experience was more than I expected and the vibes were at an all time high. I never expected to be encompassed with such love and compassion by strangers. I felt a connection to every band that graced the stage, every street artist, and every individual that allowed me to capture a visual.

Afropunk is more than a festival of music, It is a liberation, a movement, a revolution, of Love. It fights all aspects of negativity and every system that is not inclusive of all living things. Everyone who attended were welcomed with the ability to be unapologetically themselves! 

Every day there were open discussions on social justice issues and the liberation of self, followed by bands and artists of different varieties. some of my favorite artists from the weekend are listed below. 

If there is one thing that Afropunk taught me, it is that no matter where you are in the world, no matter how alone you may feel, there is always a tribe out there waiting to encompass you with love. 

Next year I plan to visit other locations of Afropunk. Did you get a chance to attend this year's festival? What was your experience? 

I met some amazing people this year and I want to share them with you! You can find these beautiful souls below!:
