Artist On The Rise is an initiative of Homecoming Events that was conceptualised with the purpose of assisting up and coming artist and musicians mainly around Pretoria and Johannesburg, giving them a platform to showcase their talent. Artists who have participated in the programme the previous year were afforded the opportunity to showcase their skill on the Homecoming Africa stage alongside some of the country’s biggest stars.
In order to assist young up and coming artists in dealing with challenges that are faced in the industry, Homecoming Events hosted the AOTR music workshop at the African Beer Emporium between 24th and 25th of August.

Over 200 entries were received, thank you to all artists who took their time to send through their music. 3 DJs and 3 artist were chosen to grace the HomeComing Africa stage. Stream the winning entries below.
