Born out of Brooklyn in 2005, Afropunk Festival is a mix of music, fashion, and art. Inspired by James Spooner’s 2003 documentary film, Afro-Punk, the festival originally sought to provide black people an opportunity to build community amongst the predominantly white punk subcultures.

In 2015 it expanded to Paris and Atlanta, this year it came to London in the Alexandra Palace venue. Instead of talking about the music we show you a collection focused on the festival’s outfits by Noisey’s photographer Will Ireland.
