Afropunk has announced their 2017 music festival lineup which features leading artists across all musical realms.

The eclectic music, arts, and cultural festival has announced an exciting lineup of artists with headliners like Kaytranada, Solange's Saint Heron label, Sampha, SZA, Willow Smith, Dizzee Rascal, Macy Gray, Thundercat and more special guests to be announced. The festival's popularity has grown in recent years to expand Afropunk in Paris, London, Atlanta and most recently Johannesburg.

In keeping with the festival's social activism theme, music lovers looking to attend are invited to participate in Afropunk's "Earn a Ticket" initiative, in which individuals can earn a free ticket to the festival by volunteering in various community and charity outreach programs. If past years are any indication, fashion lovers everywhere will be keeping a special eye out in anticipation of the creative, stylish and diverse street style looks made famous by Afropunk festival-goers.

Afropunk 2017 returns to Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park for the weekend of August 26 and 27. Get your tickets here.
