Afro-Punk Festival Returns to Brooklyn for the 7th Year

Summer solstice aside, you can tell when it’s officially summer here in NYC because the announcements about various festivals just don’t stop pouring in. We already told you about the Northside Festival and now you can add the Afro-Punk festival to your summer calendar as well!

The Afro-punk Festival is returning to Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park August 27-28. The 2011 festival has the most stellar line up yet with Cee-Lo Green, Santigold, Janelle Monae, Fishbone, Jay Electronica, Toro Y Moi, Toshi Reagon, Ninjasonik, Cerebral Ballzy, Gordon Voidwell, Reggie Watts, Res, Joi, Rocky Business, Straight Line Stitch and more to be added.

Since the hunger for music will be satiated with the above stellar line-up, there will be some delicious edibles to satisfy the hunger in the your stomach. Over 20 of the NYC area’s hottest food trucks and vendors have been brought together for the Afro-Punk Bites and Beats Food Truck Festival, which will bring cuisine from around the world and the 5 boroughs to the festival. In addition, Chef Marcellus Coleman, Executive Chef of Alias Restaurant in NYC, will provide his eclectic contemporary American cuisine to the festival artists, athletes and VIP’s.

Yum on all counts, are we right?
