In case you’ve missed the memo, London’s installation of Afropunk has been topsy-turvy at best. First M.I.A.’s in, then she’s out, then she’s in again and now, it appears she’s officially been replaced. And, not just by anyone! Oh no, the creators of Afropunk reached down into their souls and plucked the fiercest femme on the planet to headline. No, not Beyonce; I’m referencing none other than Grace Jones! All hail her #BlackGirlMagic as she joins forces with SZA, Laura Mvula, GoldLink, Kwabs and a host of others.
This year’s festival will take place on September 24th at Alexandra Palace, and is expected to be at capacity. My suggestion, grab your tickets–like yesterday! TICKETS
