The love and support for Cotton Fest has been streaming in from both the public and the entertainment industry. Today, they officially announced that the two-day sold-out festival, which was supposed to happen later this month, has been postponed to April 2022.
Following the endless endearing tributes and messages from across the globe over the past two weeks, the decision, together with Riky Rick’s family, was made to move FORWARD with the highly anticipated lifestyle festival.

Known for showcasing the diversities in various music genres with the aim of fusing the gaps within the different local movements, Riky Rick created Cotton Fest to merge both well-known and young emerging SA artists.
“We have to continue to keep his spirit and legacy alive. What better way to do this than to continue the work Riky has already started. Cotton Fest needs to go ahead as planned by him! His love and belief in showcasing young and upcoming talent is unquestionable, which is how Cotton Fest came about a few years back. And in his own words – we never die, we multiply! Let’s build on this energy and continue to spread the love and light at a time when we need it the most,” affirmed Riky’s wife Bianca Naidoo this morning.
Cotton Fest will now take place on the 23rd and 24th of April in Newtown, Johannesburg.
The team apologises for any inconvenience caused to current ticket holders who might not be able to attend on these new days.
The weekend line-up will be announced later this month.
