Cotton Fest was curated for the music and fashion lovers and for the new generation by Ricky Rick one of the most influential artists in our country. Cotton Fest had almost very South African artist and Dj on their stages, over 120 acts were set to perform on three different stages at Cotton Fest. On the cotton stage we had the likes of Big Zulu, Reason, Stilo Magolide, AKA, Kamu Mphela, Yanga Chief, Boity and the most talked about and most streamed amapiano duo Kabza De small and Dj Maphorisa.
The second stage, the rage stage had all the trappers, rappers and Dj’s that made everyone mosh pit from Slice Frederico, Frank Casino, 45 Degrees, Dj Doowap, windows 2000 and J molley. Cotton Fest had a handful of sponsors and Desperado, a tequila flavored beer company happened to be one of the sponsors which then brings us to the third and final stage the Desperado stage, it had amapiano hit makers Semi tee, Kamu dee, Killer kau and Jazzidisciples , gqom artists Distruction boys and Dj Sandiso as well as the OG himself Oskido.
The artist that came on stage and left everyone with their jaws hanging was the Pretoria based rapper, A-reece. We all know A-reece for his pen, the delivery and punches and that’s exactly what everyone that was at cotton fest and people that were streaming from home got from him after he performed some of his well known songs as well his unreleased music. Everyone that was part of the experience can vouch that they had an unforgettable day and night. People are waiting for the next fest Mr Makhado.
1/5 culture club team members, Tandaza Simama went to Cotton Fest yesterday to be a part of the Cotton Fest experience and the culture since we’re all about that. The two main things we wanted to capture of the entire experience was faces and fits, faces (who was there?) and fits (who wore what?) We didn’t get media accreditation as well as the two photographers we work with on some Culture Club projects Siso and Andrew Mkize. All the pictures that are on this article were found on the official cotton fest Twitter and Instagram pages.
