Cotton eaters get ready! Riky Rick is well into vision 2020.
The King Kotini and his team are preparing for the second annual Cotton Fest. Last month they announced this much anticipated festival with an Aftermovie video, for FOMO? I’m sure, no one can watch the clip and not want to be within those grooves.
No lies, heres the video – see for yourself
Don’t play yourself, you don’t want to miss this. Diarize the 1st of February – thats when the Station in Newtown will be buzzing with over 200 artists. The early bird tickets are now on sale for R150 at Webtickets and Pick ‘n Pay outlets nationwide. The festival is about showcasing the diversities in hiphop while fusing the gaps within the different local movements with a variety of both known and unknown South African talent.
Riky Rick and his team launched the highly anticipated artwork earlier this week. As done with all events, the brand logo was used on various promotional material including the merchandise, posters, flyers and TV ads.
The team realized it’s popularity within the sub-culture when various graffiti pieces popped up in and around Johannesburg. Young stylista’s adapted the merchandise and kept rocking it at events over the past few months. Social media was abuzz months after the festival took place. The LOGO had made a statement and wasn’t going anywhere.
The design team then worked on a new creative for the 2020 look and feel for the festival.
“Apart from the huge support we got from young people last year, the love we received for our simple logo was just insane. We were never ready for it to be honest. So we decided to flip it up again for the festival next year, we kept the aesthetic clean and fresh. We included some feel good characters to the logo. We tried to keep in tune with the drip, keeping in the fun and light heartedness” says Cotton Fest’s Riky Rick. “Hope the kids and culture love it because all about them. Looking forward to their response and support as always of course.”
The full artists lineup will be confirmed later this year.
