Rosefest 2020

Our Bright Future

If you attended Rosefest in Johannesburg or Durban last year, thank you so much for being apart of the very first of many to come! We have put together a movie as a thank you to all the supporters who attended, let us know if you see yourself or your friends! Rosefest is not staying in 2019, even though we may not be able to relax on the grass at a festival we have still be working hard this year to continue in 2020 and beyond.. 
With the phenomenal support received in 2019 at the launch of Rosefest, we are excited to announce the next installment with our Rosefest 2020 campaign – Our Bright Future. Rosefest was started to address the inequalities in the music industry that women face consistently, this year we are broadening the conversation to address Mental Health and Gender Based Violence. Rosefest has partnered with Lifeline SA to host change – focused discussions and community centered deep dives into the issues women and society are facing. We aim to bridge the gap between those affected and the organisations set up to assist.These conversations will be moderated by the phenomenal Ashanti Kunene, a social justice activist passionate about open, honest conversations that encourage people to learn how to unlearn toxic beliefs and behaviors. We will involve carefully curated panels of speakers we hope will open the conversation in an informative and progressive light.

With soo much amazing music filling the space from female artists, I have decided to put together a playlist of some of my favorite songs by different women all over Africa. This playlist is just a drop in the ocean of the fantastic music that is available and I want to encourage everyone to explore the ladies you may not have heard of and listen to more of their music, you won’t be disappointed. Follow this link to add the playlist to your Apple Music, this will be updated daily in August 2020 and then every now and again after. If you do not have Apple Music, follow us on social media and we will keep you updated.
