The lineup for Afropunk 2017 is good for the soul

Solange, Sampha, SZA and more.

Last year, Afropunk London was faced with several challenges when launching its inaugural festival—a threatened boycott; a headliner replacement—but things seem to be moving smoothly in its original home of Brooklyn as the line-up for this summer has just been announced.

Much like the Pitchfork Festival where Solange and Saint Heron will be curating a series of events, the record label-turned-"cultural hub" will also be organizing a stage at Afropunk that will feature: Sampha | Thundercat | Sinkane | KING

Kaytranada will also curate a stage, where he will perform alongside: NAO | Sango | J Rocc & Karriem Riggins (Live)

Other scheduled performers include: SZA | Willow Smith | Gary Clark, Jr. | Little Simz | Princess Nokia | Kevin Abstract | The Cool Kids | QUIÑ | Macy Gray | Michael Kiwanuka | Dizzee Rascal | and more.

More headliners to be announced soon.

Afropunk 2017 goes down August 26 & 27 at Commodore Barry Park.
