In a first for Africa, Afropunk are preparing to bring one of their multicultural music, art and food festivals to Constitution Hill in December 2017. Afropunk launched its African adventure at Constitution Hill on 11 May 2017.
Afropunk is an online community celebrating black culture within an openness to multiculturalism, making it a perfect fit for a precinct that commemorates what a lack of constitutionalism did to South Africa, and which celebrates the Constitution that now secures South Africans’ rights. The December festival will include bands, musicians and artists from South Africa, the United States, Europe and the rest of Africa.
Afropunk is determined to spend at least five years in South Africa, and the South African festivals will change as they learn more about the country and what the South African Afropunk community wants and needs.
