The Weekender: What to wear to the Afropunk Festival


Last year’s Afropunk Festival was cancelled due to rain (thanks, Irene), but the city’s patience is being rewarded with a stellar lineup. Janelle Monae, TV on the Radio, Erykah Badu, Spank Rock, Das Racist, Reggie Watts, Toro y Moi, Gym Class Heroes…the list goes on and on—and that’s just for bands; there will also be a skate competition, flea market, art wall, and lots of food trucks throughout Saturday and Sunday. Here’s what to wear when you head to Fort Greene’s Commodore Berry Park.
