It’s like a homecoming event when Afropunk Festival was finally held in Johannesburg, South Africa in December 30-31th 2017.
These past 12 years, the festival provided a blank space for alternative black culture through music, art, and fashion. The Brooklyn-based music festival picked out the African spirit and heritage, afro, and mix it with rebelliousness of punk. Every year, the festival served brilliant perfomances and exciting atmosphere for the festivalgoers.
If the Brooklyn, Atlanta, Paris, and London stops were about respecting and fully embrace their African ancestry, in Johannesburg, it was all about Africa’s rich heritage, traditional baits, and vibrant street styles. Everyone came and enjoyed the festival spirit in their heartbeat. Although the rain poured down the festival, the partygoers, or basically Africans, were fine with it. Rain means blessing in their mother culture. And it absolutely didn’t stop them to show their utmost styles.
From infamous designers, singers, photographer, model, stylist to student presented themselves in different colors of African’ touch on their style. They dressed up so variously, it was honestly so hard to pick which was the best one; all of the styles screamed their individual traits, and with a taste of Africa. Check some of their cool street styles!
