This year's AfroPunk Fest was my first and only the second music festival I've ever attended in NYC. 

I think it was also by far one of the best festival experiences I've ever had! The Sunday lineup was incredible (unfortunately I only made it out one day), the food selection was on point and the people... so many beautiful, creative and fun-loving people! That's probably what puts this festival so high up on the list... it was crowded and yet no one spent the entirety of a set pushing and shoving others around them. You could really enjoy the music, sway in rhythm with the songs and rock together in harmony with the rest of the Afropunks. 

(Do I sound like a hippie yet? Yes? Good.) 

Check out some of the photos I managed to snap while I was there: 

Thundercat on the main stage...

I missed out on seeing him perform a few years ago, so I'm so glad I got a chance to see him live this weekend. He was amazing! What a great set to kick off my AfroPunk Fest experience!

The Heavy Rotation // Vol. 2 - Gearing Up For AfroPunk

When it's good music, is it ever overkill? 
I actually fell asleep to KING's "Hey" on repeat last night... 
...and woke up to it this morning... 

So what have I been up to lately? 

Besides my big (temporary) move out of the city and back to the suburbs, this past week I've been... PREPPING FOR AFRO PUNK!!

If you've been reading my blog for awhile now, you probably already know that I'm a fan of festivals, so it's needless to say that AfroPunk's been on the list for a few years now, and this year I'm FINALLY making it happen. 

Besides making sure that I've got the proper swag... I made sure to create a playlist that'll keep me on point! Check out some of my favorites below:
