The MTV Video Music Awards wasn't the only thing poppin' in Brooklyn this past weekend. An estimated 30,000 people turned out for the 8th annual AfroPunk Fest.

The two-day festival, which took place in Commodore Barry Park, is touted as "the other black experience" and celebrates a wide range of music (punk, hip hop, rap, pop, reggae, indie rock, etc) -- along with fashion and food.

The festival's organizer, Jocelyn Cooper, summed it up nicely to Here & Now radio station: "We describe AfroPunk as a free space for African Americans — and anyone else who wants to come onto that space — to just be who they are, and not being defined by monolithic definition of what, sort of, the outside culture puts on us as African American people."

Attendees got to rock out to performances by Jada Pinkett Smith and her rock band Wicked Wisdom, hip hop legend Prince Paul and those super cute punk-rocking 6th graders from Unlocking The Truth, just to name a few. And where there are dope beats, there always seems to be style stars.

Bold prints, vibrant colors and eccentric accessories are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to AfroPunk fashion (Solange would be proud). Individual style reigns supreme with bold and beautiful folks everywhere you turn. And considering the festival's name, there were plenty of Afros and naturalistas on hand.

With that said, we combed Instagram for some of the best style moments from the festival. Feast your eyes on the slideshow below and let us know who catches your eye!
