The Afropunk Fest is always great for people watching, and this past weekend’s 10th annual extravaganza was no exception.
For the first time, the celebration of alternative black culture charged admission — $40 for a single day pass, $70 for the full weekend — but that didn’t stop festival goers from dressing their best and dancing the weekend away to a star studded lineup in Fort Greene’s Commodore Barry Park.
Below, a few inspiring tweets from the festival:
