This year’s Afropunk Festival may be the best yet, and D’Angelo is partially the cause. Today, the minds behind the annual event announced that the Voodoo singer-songwriter will headline.

The Afropunk Festival will invade Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park from August 22-23. Along with D’Angelo, performers include co-headliner and British folk-soul singer Lianne La Havas, as well as Body Count (Ice-T’s metal band), Trash Talk, Meshell Ndegeocello, SZA, The Internet, Shabazz Palaces, Alice Smith, and more.

The crowd has grown each year, as the free festival has become increasingly popular. There’s a ticket option for those who don’t appreciate waiting in lines. See that here.

Peep the full lineup below.
