Afro Punk Festival releases 2012 schedule

Last year, the Afro Punk festival had to be postponed because of Hurrican Irene. Luckily, this weekend's Afro Punk Festival will go smoothly with no storm in sight. The event is free and will be held at Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn. TV on The Radio, Gym Class Heroes, Erkyah Badu and Janelle Monae are some of the acts performing. You can also see a rockin' skateboard competition, check out some art from amazing artists and hit up the thrift market. Check out the schedule for this weekend's event below.
