AFROPUNK 2016. It happened. It was awesome. However…
AFROPUNK is one of the few festivals where organic connections lead to lifelong, sometimes… life changing connections. What makes this festival special is that it is one of the few safe spaces designed to welcome and celebrate the diversity, creativity and energy of Black People while including others from different ethnicities from all over the world. Inclusion. As AFROPUNK continues to grow year after year, many of us hope that the authentic moments that make AFROPUNK so amazing are not lost in the sauce of the “business” of AFROPUNK. Some of the moments that you won’t see captured on camera depict that this safe space is in danger of becoming just another big business music festival. Horrible cell phone connectivity. Overzealous security staff. Food vendors selling $8 grilled cheese sandwiches. Seriously? Seriously. If you attended this year as well as last year, then you know what I am talking about. Deep sigh.
My message to the curators of AFROPUNK is simple: STAY WOKE. Don’t lose the magic.
