After a lot of discussion and controversy over M.I.A.'s headlining set at Afropunk London, following comments about the Black Lives Matter movement, she has officially been replaced. Grace Jones will now take centre stage during the forthcoming festival, which is set to take over Alexandra Palace on Saturday, September 24.

A second wave of artists were also announced, including Laura Mvula, Kwabs, The Noisettes, Loyle Carner, Goldlink, Joe Kay, The Whooligan, Hannah Faith, Eden Hagos, MNEK, Lady Leshurr, Skinny Girl Diet, Jorja Smith, Big Joanie, Nova Twins, The Connectors, Mikel Ameen and lots more.
