For Africa Day this year we teamed up with our friends Everyday People for the very first edition of #EVERYDAYAFRIQUE, an all-day party on the Output roof in Brooklyn that saw over 1,400 of NYC's best dressed turn up for sets from Okayafrica Electrafrique's own DJ Cortega and DJ Underdog joined by EP resident DJs Moma and Rich Knight. If you missed out, rest assured we haven't seen the last of #EVERYDAYAFRIQUE. In the meantime, NYC-based photographers Leon Williams (@leonwilliamsnyc) and Issac Campbell (@reallifesoup) were on hand to document the festivities.
