Burna Boy, Adekunle Gold, Lucky Daye, To Headline Afropunk Brooklyn Festival

Burna Boy, Lucky Daye, Adekunle Gold, and more have been tapped for the 2022 Afropunk Festival, returning to the live music sector for the first time since 2019.

Having taken place virtually for the past two years, Afropunk will return to Brooklyn, New York’s Commodore Barry Park, on Sept. 10 and 11. This year’s edition marks Burna Boy’s first headlining set at a US festival and his first show in New York City since his sold-out Madison Square Garden concert this past April. He is expected to perform music from his upcoming album, Love, Damini.

In addition to performances, the festival will also feature activations that will provide event-goers an opportunity to indulge in cuisines from renowned Midwestern chefs and local food trucks. Attendees will also have the chance to experience a live mural, early morning Yoga sessions, art galleries, and film screenings.

Tickets for Afropunk go on sale Friday, June 17 at 10 a.m. EST. Citi Cardmembers will have access to an exclusive presale beginning Thursday, June 16 at 10 a.m. EST.
