Afropunk Brooklyn 2017: SZA, Kaytranada, Sampha & More to Perform

The Afropunk 2017 lineup is officially here, and it boasts some of the dopest black R&B, hip-hop and dance artists currently taking over their respective scenes. View the announcement video above. The roster includes Gary Clark Jr., SZA, Little Simz, Princess Nokia, Protoje, Dizzee Rascal, Macy Gray, Willow Smith and Soul II Soul.

There will also be two special artist-curated stages from Solange's Saint Heron label and Kaytranada & Friends. Solange's own features Sampha, Thundercat, Sinkane, KING and a guest artist that could very well be the singer herself. Kaytranada will perform on his own stage alongside Nao, Sango, J. Rocc and Karriem Riggins.

Afropunk returns to Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park in Fort Greene, and takes place from August 26-27.
