  • R&B and neo-soul singer Kehlani has been added to the lineup for the 2022 edition of Rocking the Daisies.
  • This will mark the singer's first time performing on the African continent.
  • The festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg over the weekend of 7 – 9 October.


R&B and neo-soul singer Kehlani has been announced as the second international act at the 2022 edition of Rocking the Daisies.

The Distraction singer joins previous acts announced Clean Bandit, and a slew of local talent, including BLXCKIE, DBN GOGO, Will Linley, Sun El Musician, Focalistic, TxC, Sio, Matthew Mole, Aymos, Nasty C and Kid Fonque on the lineup.

"Regarded as one of the leaders of the contemporary R&B garde, Kehlani's repertoire, at just 27 years old, is something to marvel at. Receiving her start on American Idol as part of a girl band in 2011, just three years later, Kehlani went on to drop their debut solo album SweetSexySavage and subsequently find their way to numerous collaborations with names such as Charlie Puth, Cardi B, Ty Dolla Sign, Eminem, Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Zayne Malik and Musiq Soulchild (to name a few) in the years to follow," reads a press release.

Kehlani's upcoming performance at Rocking the Daisies 2022 will mark their first time performing on the African continent.

"We are excited about Kehlani's presence at this year's festival because they are a one-of-a-kind talent and an unbelievably spirited performer with an incredible collection of music that resonates with audiences all over the world," says Steyn Entertainment general manager Shannon Valstar.

But as a progressive company seeking to play our part in moving the world in the direction of love and inclusivity, we are particularly delighted to have secured a headliner that truly advocates for and lives the values that we strive to represent in all of our endeavours.

The festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg over the weekend of 7 – 9 October.

Phase 1 tickets for both legs of the festival go live on 26 May 2022 via www.quicket.com.
