Words and pho­tos by Aaron Lee

Afrop­unk wel­comes inde­pen­dent traders sell­ing African and Caribbean goods at its festivals.

Some 30 ven­dors were present at this year’s Lon­don fes­ti­val, sell­ing every­thing from African head wraps to Bey­on­cé-inspired gift cards.

In between see­ing Corinne Bai­ley Rae, Jme, The Inter­net and all the oth­er amaz­ing acts (see our full review), we found time to whizz round and vis­it a few of the sell­ers in the marketplace.
