An exciting lineup has been unveiled for the UK's second Afropunk festival.

The celebration of multiculturalism has established itself in the US and across Europe, and now boasts a top roster of artists for next month's London show.

Among those set to perform over the two days are Lianne La Havas, Nao, Thundercat, Danny Brown, JME and The Internet.

Festivalgoers will also be able to browse through stalls of memorabilia celebrating African and Caribbean culture.

Tickets for the event at The Printworks are on sale from £90.

The community-facing event will also feature a Battle of the Bands, designed to bring out local talents and supported by Soundcloud and The Roundhouse.

The theme for 2017 is We The People, and will encourage unity of people of all races.

Will Smith, Born N Bread, Gal-Dem DJs, Liam Bailey, Kiah Victoria and Don Letts and The Bots also feature on the bill for the festival on July 22 and 23.
