How to slay any music festival according to HeyGorJess
Everyone knows New York City is a huge melting pot. From the food to the people there’s a whole lotta culture happening on every block. But today we’re gonna focus on one specific city and an amazing little festival that happens in it. The city is Brooklyn and the festival is Afropunk.
Check out our interview below with Jessica as she explains her experience. We’ve even included live interviews from some funky individuals at the fest that you don’t wanna miss.
With NYC being such a huge hub for culture, how has Afropunk amplified this?
Afropunk brings all of the different cultures and backgrounds together into one place where it all can be displayed on a large scale. It also provides amazing coverage and media for NYC.
What would you say is the best thing about being a Brooklyn resident?
One of the best things about being a Brooklyn resident is being able to experience all of it’s culture and diversity in its entirety. It really is a melting pot with all different types of people with diverse backgrounds. There are so many fun things to do and I am constantly discovering more about Brooklyn
What do you believe Afropunk is to Brooklyn and vise versa?
Afropunk is a beautiful representation of Brooklyn. It highlights it’s amazing diversity, culture, art, music and more.
So how do you prepare for a festival?
I prepare by making sure I have a bag packed with necessities such as a portable charger, sunscreen, water, and sunglasses. These are some of the things I bring that help make sure I have a fun time.
My top favorite things to do are go to Prospect Park, visit the Brooklyn Museum, hang out on a cute rooftop, attend events, and eat at all of the different restaurants Brooklyn has to offer.
