This Memorial Day and African Liberation Day, Okayafrica will be teaming up with Everyday People to bring you EVERYDAY AFRIQUE, an all-day party at Brooklyn's Output. Everyday People resident DJs DJ Moma and DJ Rich Knight will join Electrafrique hosts DJ Cortega and DJ Underdog, as well as Brooklyn-based producer Kashaka for an epic rooftop throwdown starting at 3PM and going well into the night. The special one-off party will be catered by Brooklyn South African restaurant Madiba. If you were at our last collab party with Everyday People you'll know what's in the cards for this. In the meantime, DJ Cortega has teased us with his okayafrica | electrafrique (may 2015 mix) to get acquainted with the night's sounds. Check out all the additional info for our upcoming EVERYDAY AFRIQUE in the flyers and see you on the rooftop! Entry is $10 at the door. Ladies enter for free before 5PM.
