Rolling Stone SA reveals first cover

2011-11-22 10:01
Cape Town - Legendary music, culture and current affairs magazine Rolling Stone has unveiled the first artist to feature on the South African cover on Tuesday - local jazz music icon Hugh Masekela.

The magazine will hit shelves in South Africa on Wednesday.

Covering a wide range of content from young visionaries and icons to politics, movies and more, Rolling Stone believes in music as a unifying force.

Rolling Stone South Africa Editor-In-Chief Miles Keylock says: "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."

Produced under licence in South Africa by Cape Town based 3i Publishing, the monthly title has a retail price of R34.95.

The magazine features in-depth, up-close and personal profiles on cultural icons and ground-breaking artists, current affairs and 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.
