Recap: AFROPUNK Festival 2012 featuring Janelle MonaeEvents — By JGM Staff on August 27, 2012 at 4:29 pm
What a wonderful weekend it was for the 8th annual Brooklyn AFROPUNK festival 2012, all kinds of people from all over the world attended this two-day event filled with music, culture, and good vibes. Definitely a way larger crowd than the previous year’s, this years music line up brought the people out, there were lines that led all the way to the street. Many great performances from people like Flatbush Zombies, Das Racist, Erykah Badu and the lively Janelle Monae who killed her set. We got a chance to check out Janelle Monae’s set up close, she gave off so much energy and the crowd gave it back times 3. She dragged people in by her voice, her dancing kept you swaying and clapping, there was never a dull moment, this was a performance you would pay for. Luckily we all got it for free. Check out some photos we took of her and the festival.
