From July 15 – 16, Afropunk is heading to La Villette. This event has a little bit of everything: music, film, street art, debates, market of wares from up-and-coming European designers, food trucks, and skate park. And it doesn’t hurt that the line-up includes names like Macy Gray, Mos Def, and Laura Mvula.
