Legendary music, culture and current affairs magazine Rolling Stone launches in South Africa on Wednesday 23 November 2011. Covering everything from young visionaries and icons to politics, movies and more, Rolling Stone believes in music as a unifying force.
Boasting 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 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.
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, cutting edge current affairs and provocative pieces on TV, radio, fashion and entertainment trends.
