Afropunk began in 2003 as a cosy gathering to celebrate the black punk scene -has spread its wings, broadened its ethos (less punk rock,more power to the people) roped in more heavyweight acts and gone global 
Afro: as in, born of African spirit and heritage; see also black (not always), see also rhythm and color, see also other, see also underdog.
Punk: as in, rebel, opposing the simple route, imbued with a DIY ethic, looking forward with simplicity, rawness and open curiosity; see also other, see also underdog.
AFROPUNK is defining culture by the collective creative actions of the individual and the group. It is a safe place, a blank space to freak out in, to construct a new reality, to live your life as you see fit, while making sense of the world around you.

Afropunk and Coachella are the two festivals on my bucket list. I like the inclusiveness and the come as you are feel both festivals have.
