Afropunk London 2017 marketplace photos

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.
