During this important election year, with self-empowerment winds blowing through the air, the theme AFROPUNK has chosen for the 12th installment of the festival is “POWER TO THE PARTY.”

POWER, it’s a feeling, it’s an energy, it’s the undisputed connection between cause
and effect — the best of us give it away, the worst usurp it, but living modern life to
the fullest, means either mastering your relationship to it or walking in its shadow. 
We are not blind.

PARTY, is an oxymoron, it's a gathering of many for a shared purpose and it’s also an
outcast individual, it’s a lively social occasion as well as a gang — and the story of
any party is never over, because like naked cities and the metaphysical “I”, there’s
always another take.

So why is AFROPUNK giving "POWER TO THE PARTY?" Because we trust the friction, the transference of great capacity to the free spirit, belief in the high-heeled spark of the assembly, and the group-mind’s ability to choose a glorious path. This isn’t about getting elected, or being protected; it’s about staking a claim.
