Like its US counterpart, the South African edition of Rolling
Stone magazine showcases in-depth stories that hit harder than Muhammad Ali's
legendary right hook. Following the trail-blazing path of iconic Rolling Stone
writers and photographers such as Hunter S. Thompson and Annie Leibovitz,
Rolling Stone South Africa rings in a new generation of revolutionary writers
hungry for the chance to answer the essential question all South African ask
themselves: “how do we live in this strange place?”
Simple. Rolling Stone SA's content is never compromised and all editorial work is selected purely for the satisfaction of the reader. As 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 content in any other magazine in South Africa. We feature rock alongside kwaito, jazz alongside pop, and hip-hop alongside house. This potential, to start cross-pollinating cultural conversations, is one of the most exciting things about the magazine.”
Catering to socially aware music lovers of all ages and both women and men alike, the magazine is the first of its kind in South Africa, and plays an integral role in discovering new talent and paying tribute to iconic artists. Boasting a 50/50 split of local and international content, Rolling Stone SA engages readers with stories that resonate in their own experiences and lives. Whether you’re into the South African or international music scene, current affairs, liberal politics or popular culture, you can guarantee that the magazine’s got you covered with 116 pages to peruse.
