Shekhinah is Taking her Rosefest Festival to Durban

Shekhinah is taking her festival home.

In August, Shekhinah hosted the inaugural edition of her self-produced festival Rosefest. Rosefest Johannesburg took place on National Women's Day (August 9).

In October, the singer, songwriter and producer is taking the festival to her hometown, Durban. Rosefest Durban will take place on the 12th of the month at the Kings Park Stadium Outer Fields, a day after International Day of the Girl Child on October 11th .


"I've never had my own show in my own hometown," says Shekhinah in a press release. "It's pretty exciting and scary at the same time although we have done Rosefest once before it's a completely different city with a completely audience" she says. She continues to express "I am hoping it feels more like a homecoming than anything and I get celebrated with everyone from home with a line up sited just for Durban."

Rosefest Durban will have a carnival theme and an all-female line-up just like the first edition. The names on the line-up haven't been released yet. The Joburg edition included DJ Zinhle, Moonchild Sanelly, Simmy, Sho Madjozi and Busiswa among others alongside Shekhinah as the headliner.

The festival's name comes from Rose Gold, Shekhinah's critically acclaimed debut album which was released in 2017. Rose Gold featured artists such as Mariechan and Rouge, and came with hit singles such as "Different" and "Suited." Rose Gold has been certified platinum by RiSA (Recording Industry of South Africa).
