AFROPUNK 2020 cannot be stopped by the pandemic - we're going virtual, and we're bringing our beloved vendors, traders, and makers with us!
What: AFROPUNK Fest Online
When: October 23-25, 2020
Who: Thousands of Fans, Music, and Vendors
How: Apply to be a vendor below.
The AFROPUNK Online Festival Marketplace is an AFROPUNK-curated directory of traders, makers, artisans, businesses and craftspeople [vendors] from around the world. Fans will be able to search the directory to access each vendors' AFROPUNK profile. From there, the user will be directed to your site to browse your inventory, make purchases, and coordinate shipping.
Fans will be able to search for vendors by product type(s), mission/activist alignment, location, shipping capabilities, black/female/queer-owned, hand made, custom, AP-loved, and other filters important to our audience. Additionally, vendors will have the opportunity to purchase features for their business or products such as top listings in filters and the marketplace home page, commercial features, and recognition during the broadcast. These options will be shared with vendors with a price list and requirements upon acceptance.
Vendors will be featured on the AFROPUNK website beginning one week before the festival, and for at least one week after the festival. We may extend the Online Marketplace after that as well.
All users/fans will be directed to the vendors' own site to make purchases and interact with the vendor in order to coordinate shipping/fulfillment, customer service, etc.. AFROPUNK will not process any sales on the AFROPUNK site, nor manage customer service or fulfillment/shipping for vendors.
Vendors will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning September 10, 2020.
