AFROPUNK Johannesburg is back for a second year in 2018 and is expected to rock Constitution Hill on the 30th and 31st of December 2018. Today, the official line-up has been announced and fans will be excited to know that Los Angeles’ future R&B superstars The Internet and Thundercat, experimental electronic music from Flying Lotus (debuting for the first time his 3D show on the African continent), and superb dance grooves producer Kaytranada will be headlining the show this year.
Thandiswa will serve her hometown crowd with the revolutionary fusion of modern and traditional African sounds that has made her an enduring star since the 90’s while hip-hop rebellion will be served by the legendary Public Enemy, Mozambique’s Azagaia and Cape Town’s YoungstaCPT and Dope Saint Jude.
Gqom will set Afropunk’s dance floor on fire when Johannesburg’s FAKA and Port Elizabeth hitmaker Moonchild Sanelly take to the stage. New Orleans bounce is represented by the one and only Big Freedia and there will also be whimsical African superhero intonations from Nomisupasta, as well as ancestral, percussive passion by Soweto’s BCUC.
