South African songstress, Shekhinah, took to social media to announce the inaugural RoseFest, due to take place on Friday, 9 August 2019, boasting an all-female line-up.
One of South Africa’s brightest rising musicians, Shekhinah revealed RoseFest’s promotional poster in an Instagram post published on Friday, 21 June 2019, that the caption, written in entirely capital letters, reads: “Finally! Having my first tour [RoseFest 19] produced and headlined by females only. Your support means everything to us thus far and going forward. Thank you to all the ladies on the line up for coming through for me as well as my all female production team.”
Shekhinah leads the all-female line-up alongside popular local acts like DJ Doowap, Simmy, Sho Madjozi, Busiswa, Holly Rey, Moonchild Sanelly, Rowlene, DJ Zinhle, Melo B and DBN Gogo.
Shekhinah has been going from strength to strength, recently covering Cosmopolitan SA’s May 2019 issue. She commemorated this career milestone and teased Rose Fest in a post published on Sunday, 14 April 2019, that reads: “I have not only been dreaming for the girl on this cover but also managing her since she was 16. I’m 24 years old today, and I will never stop dreaming for anyone. 9 August I get to finally, after a year full of Nos, put on #RoseFest. We get to share Women’s Day with my favourite artists and finally get to perform my album for you live before I give you a new one. This show has to happen.”
RoseFest 2019 is set to take place at the Nasrec Expo Centre in Johannesburg, on Friday, 9 August 2019, which coincides with National Women’s Day.
