Featuring a 50/50 split of local and international content and showcasing South Africa’s diverse creative talent, Rolling Stone South Africa engages local audiences with stories that resonate in their own experiences and lives.
Rolling Stone South Africa’s editor-in-chief, Miles Keylock, said: “It’s about respect for our subject matter and our readers. We focus on real, in-depth pop culture and current affairs stories, not tabloid headlines and hype. You’re not going to get this kind of editorial content in any other magazine in South Africa. We will be featuring kwaito alongside rock, jazz alongside pop, and hip hop alongside house. That potential, to start cross-pollinating cultural conversations, is one of the most exciting things about the magazine.”
The magazine will be produced under licence in South Africa by Cape Town-based 3i Publishing and will feature in-depth, up-close-and-personal profiles on cultural icons and ground-breaking artists, cutting-edge current affairs and provocative pieces on TV, radio, fashion and entertainment trends.
Rolling Stone SA will be available at the following outlets: Exclusive Books, CNA, Musica, Pick ‘n Pay Hyper, Look & Listen, Spar stores nationwide and select outlets. ” – Biz Community
