Ever since the AFROPUNK line-up was released, we’ve been obsessing about seeing amazing artists like Solange, Miguel, NAO, Goldlink, Masego and Sho Madjozi perform. This incredible two-day festival is taking place from 30 to 31 December at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg. Want to win tickets to AFROPUNK? Soz, it’s obvs not even a question.
The theme for #AFROPUNKJoburg is ‘We See You’, which is a message that brings together AFROPUNK ideology and the people who support and acknowledge it, and in resistance to those who strive to oppress.

The festival has also managed to bring together Kwani Experience – they’ve been apart for eight years and fans can’t wait to see them perform!
JazziDisciples, Brazilian DJ collective Batekoo, DJ Kenzhero and Zara Julius will be joining Gina Jeanz and Lelowhatsgood behind the DJ booth to spin the hottest beats.

The Championship Ball
This is new to the festival and is a collaboration between Le Grand Ball and Vogue Nights Jozi. The aim is to reimagine the nightlife scene in Johannesburg by creating safer spaces for queer, trans and non-binary people through events in ballrooms, which breaks through the boundaries of music, fashion and dance. Think unbelievable performances and queer excellence as people compete in a runway presentation.
The SpinThrift Market
This is where you’ll find Jo’burg’s amazing artist and vendor community, including artisans, jewellers, tailors, creators and entrepreneurs selling goods. Get ready to buy from the best and brightest talents in SA.
Consider this the ultimate foodie event within the festival to indulge in all your favourite foods from Jo’burg’s restaurants and market chefs. Your only challenge will be deciding on what food and drinks to enjoy throughout the festival – we’re expecting to see a ton of food booths.
