It’s been 6 months since I bought my #AfropunkJoburg ticket and now I’m finally here! Things have definitely escalated since then and I can’t be more grateful!— Patricia Kihoro (@Misskihoro) December 30, 2017

The last weekend of 2017 was seemingly an interesting one, with AFROPUNK hitting Jozi for the very first time. From December 30-31, Constitutional Hill, Braamfontein was packed with lovers of music, art, food, culture and of course, fashion, who all came to enjoy the festival.
Hosted by Nandi Madida, the festival also brought entertainment from both local and international artist such as Anderson .Paak, Laura Mvula, King Tha VS BLK JKS, Theo Parrish, Black Motion, Spoek Mathambo, Manthe Ribane, Okzharp, The Brother Moves On, DJ Lag, Urban Village, Nakhane Toure, Nonku Phiri and TCIYF.
For over 15 years, AFROPUNK has been known for its multiculturalism and diversity and has been making a mark in the music world in all its host cities - Brooklyn and Atlanta in America and London and Paris in Europe.
Despite the very rain that poured on day one of the festival, people still conquered and revealed their awesome fashion sense. These are some of our best looks:
