AFROPUNK outfits are legendary, and Miami did not disappoint. See photos of styles.


AFROPUNK stands for freedom of expression.

From Star Trek costumes to plant-based headwear to neck rings, Planet AFROPUNK Live: Miami brought together a wide range of people on Saturday, the vast majority of whom represented their particular slice of the African diaspora. When festival-goers weren’t frolicking in front of the stage, they spent time shopping for clothes at Spinthrift Market, shopping for hair products at the Hair & Beauty Village or enjoying the wealth of art installations.

Since its first iteration in 2005, AFROPUNK has grown into an international brand dedicated to celebrating black culture. Although this is AFROPUNK’s first showcase in Miami, previous festivals have taken place in Brooklyn, Paris and South Africa.

Planet AFROPUNK Live Experience debuted in Miami Friday and continues through Sunday. Tickets to the event, which takes place at The Urban 1000 NW 2nd Ave in Miami, are still available here.
