The AFROPUNK Festival is a musical institution, defining culture in the music world for over 14 years, a triumph of multiculturalism and diversity for people of all races, genders, colours, creeds and tastes. NEW YORK, ATLANTA, LONDON and PARIS are all home to global AFROPUNK events, and now you can add JOHANNESBURG to that list of global capitals. The first batch of performers who’ll take part in the inaugural festival, which will take place on December 30-31, were announced by Sal Masekela at a bash featuring the finest in SA culture at Constitution Hill’s Women’s Jail on Thursday the 11th of May. Thandiswa Mazwai (a.k.a. King Tha) & The Blk Jks, Manthe Ribane, Themba Lunacy and DJ Doowap rocked the launch party till the early hours of the morning.
