The 10th annual Afro Punk Festival continues Sunday in Fort Greene's Commodore Barry Park.

More than 60 acts are performing at the two-day music festival.

Organizers say the festival celebrates urban culture inspired by alternative music.

Some of the headliners include D'Angelo, and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.

"I love the crowd," said one attendee. "I think the creativity is everywhere, on the people, on the vendors and on the music."

"It's got a lot of great, really, indie bands and some big headliners in the nighttime sets," said another. "A bunch of stages, a bunch of food, a bunch of friends."

"I'm here to listen to great music and eat some good food and also see the fashion and everything that's here today," said a third.
