Rocking the Daisies announced earlier in May that after a two year hiatus the culture shifting festival will be back on the first weekend in October. Having revealed the festival partners as well as the accommodation options they have begun rolling out the announcements on the artists who will perform at the festival. Blxckie has been the first headliner announced this morning by Rocking The Daisies.
“At the core of the Steyn Entertainment company values, our plight is primarily concerned with empowering and stimulating the South African entertainment landscape, especially post-pandemic where the industry is attempting to pick itself up after the profound knock it’s taken,” says General Manager, Shannon Valstar. “We are extremely proud of the incredible international talent that the Rocking in the Daisies stage has been able to attract over the past decade and will continue to create the kind of environment where robust and meaningful cultural exchange between artists and fans of different countries and continents is encouraged to thrive.
“With that said, with the current global musical renaissance happening–being led by Africa-it has never been more palpable that we are producing art parallel to the best in the world. In 2022, not only will Rocking the Daisies be presenting electrifying talent from across the globe, our stages will be co-headlined by local artists as well” – adds Valstar.
Alongside Blxckie, 23, Rocking The Daisies is set to unleash a carousel of additional major local names via its Instagram platform on Monday 23 May, through an interactive mechanic. Followers are prompted to like the post announcing the initial wave of SA co-headliners, and upon every 1500 likes accrued, a new artist from the #JWxRTD22 line-up will be revealed to fans.
