AFROPUNK

The concert that I attended this year was the much anticipated and amazing Afropunk Atlanta 2019. The event takes place across a weekend and features performances from multiple artists. This year, on Saturday there were performances by SIR, FKA Twigs, Earthgang, Ravyn Lenae and more. Sunday consisted of performances by Anderson .Paak, Smino, Masego, Mahalia, Lucky Daye and more. The artists who perform at this event come from various genres from neosoul to hip hop to  R&B to electronic. The concert is put on each year to give individuals a space to come and hear multiple artists while having the creative freedom to express themselves through fashion and other art forms. I had an amazing time at the concert exploring the different vendors and listening my favorite artists perform. It is the perfect place to go to experience a concert that consists of so many genres .
