The 2012 Afropunk Festival will be headlined by Erykah Badu and Gym Class Heroes. The fest takes over Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park on August 25-26.
Others to take the stage for the two day event include Cannibanoids, Janelle Monae, Das Racist, Skindred, Toro Y Moi, Reggie Watts, Spank Rock, Ninjasonik, Toshi Reagon, Straight Line Stitch, the Memorials, Radkey, Bad Rabbits, Gordon Voidwell, the London Souls, Cerebral Ballzy, Phony Ppl and Body Language.
In addition to the music, concertgoers will marvel at the derring-do of the competitors in the Nike Battle for the Streets Skate and BMX Competition.
According to event organizers, it is "the largest street skate and BMX competition in NYC will return this year with the nation's top amateur skaters and BMX riders in a competition to be judged by top professionals in both sports."
More acts are expected to be added as the event draws nearer.
