Solange Added as Afropunk Fest Headliner
This past weekend, Solange graced the Panorama main stage with an alluring headlining set, and the singer is set to bring her performance to another major festival with the announcement that she'll be headlining Brooklyn's Afropunk Fest.
On Tuesday (Aug. 1), it was announced that Solange will be headlining the first night of the event on Aug. 26. Solange will perform on the stage for the label she founded, Saint Heron.
The two-day-long festival also announced the addition of British singer Jorja Smith to the massive lineup, which features sets from major names in R&B, EDM and hip-hop including SZA, Anderson .Paak, Thundercat, Sampha and more.
Afropunk also shared its After Dark events following the festival, which include the annual Fancy Dress Ball at the Schimanski night club with special guest DJs still to be announced, the film festival Far Out Black, An Evening of Afro-Futurist Short Films at Trilok Fusion, and the comedy event Afro Comedy at Bedford Hall.
