Power To The Party: Afropunk Heads To London This Weekend

London ladies, are you looking for something awesome to do this weekend? Your search is over, because this Saturday Afropunk brings its party to London for its inaugural edition.

Staged at the historic Alexandra Palace – with line up that includes the sensational Grace Jones, Laura Mvula and The Noisettes – the event invites attendees to become apart of the Afropunk family.

Now in its 13th and largest year, Afropunk has transformed from a small, music and activism movement, to a global community with annual festivals in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Paris, and now London.

On paper, you may be fooled to think it is simply a one-day music festival – but one look at the hashtag on Instagram reveals something very special.

Afropunk has been defining culture in the music world; a triumph of multiculturalism and diversity for people of all races, genders, colours, creeds and tastes.

It is a place where lines of booths dubbed ‘Activism Row’, bring out music lovers and believers in change in equal measures.

Giant banners promoting an inclusive experience hang next to every stage proclaiming “no homophobia, no sexism, no ageism”, and a long list of other prejudices that is not tolerated.

So make sure you head down over this weekend, and take a look at the most beautiful, wild and wonderful street style the UK has to offer.
