New York, NY: The FADER, Inc., an extensive and authoritative group of music and lifestyle properties, has announced a yearlong, multi-tiered campaign with AFROPUNK: the media property and annual music festival dedicated to supporting fans of the urban alternative, hardcore, and indie rock scene. This audience and community has a direct influence on emerging pop culture through a movement that is strongly reminiscent of the energy of the early days of Hip-Hop. This partnership includes a yearlong promotion between the two brands involving numerous components to each property. Andy Cohn, President and Publisher of The FADER, Inc. made the announcement.

“AFROPUNK exemplifies our mission for The FADER, giving an editorial voice to an influential audience of consumers across the music and entertainment landscape,” said Cohn. “We’re pleased to be aligning our brand with AFROPUNK on a deeper level.”

In 2005, the first annual AFROPUNK Festival debuted at the iconic Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, celebrating and unifying the cultural cornerstones of AFROPUNK: music, film, skate, and the independent and influential individuals that are the lifeblood of the AFROPUNK community. With this partnership, The FADER will continue to be the exclusive media partner for the AFROPUNK Festival, as it has been since 2011, and will now handle exclusive advertising sales for the property, and help to develop and promote additional initiatives coming up throughout the year.

“We believe in The FADER and the brand they’ve developed - right now, we are where The FADER was years ago, and are looking forward to building AFROPUNK in the same way,” said Jocelyn Cooper, Partner, AFROPUNK. “Our goal is to give a voice to kids who were once considered part of an outsider culture, yet now leading and influencing mainstream youth.”

This partnership outlines The FADER, Inc.’s full-scale offerings of its ties to integrated advertising and sponsorship opportunities across all properties for its clients. With millions of monthly impressions to The FADER, Inc.’s properties, and more than 2 million people monthly across AFROPUNK’s online networks, both brands will experience high visibility across various strategic markets of consumers.

About AFROPUNK
Described by the New York Times as putting “rock and rebellion squarely in the category of African-American music,” the AFROPUNK Festival has become a Brooklyn institution, the focal point for the burgeoning Afropunk movement. Over the past eight years, the festival has presented new artists before they hit it big, such as Grammy-nominated Santigold, The Noisettes and Janelle Monae. Afropunk mainstays like Mos Def, Bad Brains, Saul Williams, The Dirtbombs, Erykah Badu and TV on the Radio have also graced AFROPUNK’s stages. The festival is also a renowned for its pioneering street skate and BMX competition in the heart of Brooklyn.

About The FADER, Inc.
The FADER, Inc. consists of credible music and lifestyle-focused properties that speak to a combined audience of 2 million influential young adults monthly. Founded by Rob Stone and Jon Cohen, and led by President and Publisher Andy Cohn, The FADER, Inc. includes The FADER, TheFADER.com, 1200Squad.com, East Village Radio, Insound, AFROPUNK, Oh My Rockness, and The Cornerstone Mixtape.
