AFROPUNK’s Carnival of Consciousness @ 787 Windsor
Oct 14 – Oct 15 all-day
AFROPUNK’s Carnival of Consciousness @ 787 Windsor | Atlanta | Georgia | United States

You can call AFROPUNK’s Carnival of Consciousness a festival if you want — but that wouldn’t be exactly right, at least not by the definitions of “festival” developed over the last decade. Is it a conference, retreat, salon, seminar, a rave- a happening, think-tank, a maneuver? Yes, to all of the above. We prefer to think of the Carnival as a new type of open cultural space and gathering of like-minded people.

The Carnival of Consciousness is a weekend-long congregation of producers, supporters, allies and consumers of black culture that will feature a schedule of music, art, film, lectures and the honest expression of youthful black concerns, by the leading contemporary voices.

Weekend tickets include all performances and social salons (workshops) taking place over the weekend.

Line Up includes Solange, Willow Smith, Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies, Denzel Curry, Young Fathers, Alice Smith, Tricky, Mykki Blanco, Princess Nokia, Kevin Abstract & much more

Tickets available at
