Afro-Punk Festival

(PR) The 4th annual Afro-Punk Festival will be taking place July 5th - July 13th, 2008 in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. The festival is the definitive destination for the global Afro-Punk community and audiences yearning to experience true AP culture. Last year 30,000 people attended the festvial, and this year is expected to be even bigger, featuring 40 bands, 15 films being screened, a visual art exhibit and a skate park featuring 30 pro BMX riders/skaters.

What is Afro-punk? When Matthew Morgan and James Spooner joined forces in 2002, their focus was giving a voice to thousands of multi-cultural kids fiercely identifying with a lifestyle path-less-traveled. Morgan, a visionary with 18 years in the music industry, instinctively understood that the indie rock/punk/hardcore scene had powerful appeal beyond the predictable Caucasian audience; the passion evident in writer-director Spooner's hours of riveting hand-shot footage was the indisputable proof. The result: 2003's Afro-Punk, the seminal cult classic film spotlighting Black Punks in America.

Afro-Punk Festival 2008 will be free and open to the public, and will spotlight some of the most exciting young artists and bands from the US and abroad, presenting live music and films every night throughout the festival, along with several other key events.

July 5 Opening Night Event @ AP Skate Park
July 5 9 Skate Clinics (featuring BMX skaters), Live Performances & DJ's, Exhibitions & Competitions
