Last week Steyn Entertainment announced the return of Rocking the Daisies in 2022 with both Cape Town and Joburg dates. The festival will take place over the weekend of 7 – 9 October, and tickets go live on the 26th of May.

Today, the first phase of local performers will be announced on the festival’s Instagram page. Leading the pack is hip-hop superstar Blxckie who celebrated the first anniversary of his debut album B4Now last week and collected 10 plagues.

This year, Rocking The Daisies is making it a point to lead with local talent as they reveal the festival’s local performers.

“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.”

These artists will be announced on the RTD Instagram page. Followers are encouraged 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.
