"To describe Cotton Fest as anything less than historic would be a disservice to the musical acts, Riky Rick, and more importantly the festival-goers who breathed life into a once non-existent concept," I reported in February 2019.
The 2019 Cotton Fest was where fashion and music intersected under the keen leadership of Riky Rick. Today, King Kotini has announced that Cotton Fest will be back in 2020, at the same time debuting the after movie of the history-making event. According to Riky, "Thanks to the support of every single artist, concert goer, and even the suppliers we worked with, this festival made history, changed the game in a positive way."

True to any event as large in scale as Cotton Fest, the planning for the next instalment takes place immediately afterwards. This being noted, it should come as no surprise that the plans for Cotton Fest 2020 took place the week after the first concert. However, for those who never heeded the public's cries regarding the importance of Cotton Fest, the aftermovie serves to show what happened.
Take a look at the scenes from Cotton Fest 2019 and prepare yourselves for next year's event!
