aka is the first-ever hip hop act to headline rocking the daisies

21 June 2016
In a twist that is set to make the Rocking the Daisies festival even better than ever, hip hop has now been introduced to the line-up. The RTD’s first-ever hip hop headlining act has been announced and it’s fitting that they chose for it to be Africa’s Hip Hop Prince.

AKA has been announced as an RTD festival headliner, along with the American rock out fit, Foster the People.
Hip hop acts have played RTD before but it’s the first time that festival organisers are making a concerted effort to make hip hop a prominent fixture. Not only will AKA be headlining but their will be a dedicated hip hop stage too.

Mr Kiernan Forbes hasn’t held back his excitement for the event, tweeting, “1ST HIP HOP ACT TO HEADLINE AT @RockingTheDaisy."
The line-up also includes other artists to look forward to like Nasty C, Nakhane Toure, Moonchild Sanelly and DJ Invizable. Check out the full line-up below.
