Afropunk, the premiere music festival for black culture in Brooklyn, New York City. In 2004, Afropunk was created and got its name from the iconic documentary Afropunk which shows the black roots of Punk Music. The festival is a place where people of color can come and celebrate the black history of Punk music which is stereotyped as a genre that is only white.
In 2016, Afropunk displayed some of the black culture's most iconic artists such as Janelle Monáe, The Suffers, Ceelo Green and even NWA's own Ice Cube. The music was hot just like the weather outside. That didn't stop thousands of people from all around the country from coming to the soulful event. Some even mistake Afropunk for a fashion show due to the amounts of people in vibrant colors, wild hair, perfected makeup and of course, stunning outfits. These vibes will only carry over to 2017 and beyond.
This year we get ready for the next instalment of the Afropunk legacy with Sampha, Kaytranada, Willow Smith, SZA and more! A perfect blend of ground breaking favorites and emerging artists. If it's anything like previous Afropunk festivals, which I'm sure it will be, it will be the perfect place to enjoy music, free your mind and understand the arts behind the black punk lifestyle.

The lineup for 2017's instalment of Budweiser's Made In America Music Festival has official been revealed and it has definitely jam-packed the two-day weekend with incredible artists!
On September 2nd and 3rd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jay-Z and J. Cole will be headlining this years event. Also set to perform are the likes of The Chainsmokers, Migos, Solange, DMX, Kaskade, Marshmello and that's just to name a few. Most artists on this years bill are coming off their most successful years to date. Since 2012, when the festival first kicked off, Made In America has done an amazing job creating a bill for all music lovers. The festival mixes the perfect blend of Hip-Hop, R&B, Rock and EDM throughout the weekend.
Every year, The Jay-Z founded festival is the only logical option for thousands of fans on Labor Day weekend. 5 stages surround the same place that's home to Rocky and of course, the cheesesteak. Many choices of Philadelphia's best food will be available including things for vegans. In 2016, fans were also given free items to remember the time they had. I left with a back pack, a water bottle, a Budweiser bottle holder and a bracelet that emitted flashing lights when Coldplay took the stage. It was a great experience that I can't wait to re-live again this year!
With blasting tunes and cold Budweiser under the sun, Made in America is set to be another one for the books. Are you going to Made In America this year? Who are you looking forward to seeing most?

This years Warped Tour is shaping up to be as heavy and fun as ever. Since its initial show back in 1995 Warped Tour has always brought a good mix of bands across the U.S. every year. I was able to cover last years Warped Tour that included acts such as Yellowcard, New Found Glory, Sleeping With Sirens, and Chelsea Grin. As always it was a blast, with a brief delay due to weather that only lasted about a half hour or so.
Some of the bands on this years lineup that stuck out to me were bands such as GWAR, Hatebreed, CKY, and Bowling For Soup which are sure to draw an older crowd. I don’t think there is another music festival with such a diverse age group than the Warped Tour, which is one of the things that I love about it. The lineup always caters to both veteran and new comers and that makes for a great music festival. For some of the younger crowd acts such as Dance Gavin Dance, Andy Black of Black Veil Brides, Memphis May Fire, and Blessthefall are sure to attract a large gathering at The AT&T Center on a hot Summer day in the month of July.
