Since its launch at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park over a decade ago, the annual AFROPUNK Festival shows no signs of slowing down. Launched with the aim of providing a platform for black culture within the predominantly white punk subcultures, the movement has now expanded to Paris and Atlanta. This year saw London’s first ever AFROPUNK FEST taking place on Saturday 24th September. Three stages hosted talent from the worlds of punk, dub, hip-hop and beyond, with an impressive line-up which included Grace Jones, Laura Mvula, Akala, Young Fathers, Kwabs and SZA. Thousands of revellers gathered at the iconic Alexandra Palace to take part in a day of positivity, electric live music performances and head-turning fashion. INFRINGE headed down to capture some of the most beautifully diverse and creative hairstyles on display.
