According to Moozlie, Cotton Fest 2019 was the “First day of SA hip-hop school,” and we couldn't agree more. With 80 acts across two stages, fashion for the gods, and an overwhelming urge to be a part of something, Cotton Fest was everything it should have been. Tickets to the festival sold out, leaving many without a means of attending. More so than that, with only two stages and eighty brilliant acts, in the space of a day, festival goers were bound to miss an act they may have wanted to see. However, Riky did warn of this in his Cotton Fest Essentials interview, saying that people would need to budget their time wisely to see their favorite acts.
This time around, Slikour attended Cotton Fest to catch up with artists in person. In part 1 of this episode of On The Ground, your host catches up with Youngsta CPT, Nadia Nakai, and Moozlie. Find out when Youngsta CPT’s debut album drops, how Cotton Fest correlates with fashion, and what Moozlie means when she says people “are inside the internet.”
