AFROPUNK Atlanta 2019. Yowza.
I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this was by far the best AFROPUNK I’ve ever been too. Atlanta clowned. The people were BEAUTIFUL. Everyone. Not just some folks, but all. Vibes everywhere. I’m honestly still on cloud 9. I’m so in awe of how AFROPUNK leveled alllllll the way the fuck up this year. So many sponsorships and cool interactive art installations. The overall scale was just grander. It was beautiful.
Now for the tunes:
Lucky Daye. Anderson Paak. Smino. Masego. Mahalia. Brittany Howard. Fever 333.
Lucky Daye has been one of my favorites for a while and this was my first time seeing him in concert. His live show is amazing. I would have been satisfied if I went home after his set. But then I get to see Smino, a fellow STLien. And end the night with Anderson Paak who did a tribute to Mac Miller. Shawty is mad content. I am shawty.
I’m excited for how AFROPUNK Atlanta is evolving. If you were at the festival, drop me a comment! What was your favorite experience at AFROPUNK this year?
