Meek Mill and Post Malone are confirmed to appear at Castle Lite Unlocks, the South African hip hop festival.

Held across two days from June 17 to 18 in Johannesburg, the festival has quickly become one of Africa's leading events dedicated to all things hip hop, attracting global artists and the best homegrown talent.

Meek Mill will close out day one, which is dedicated to all aspects of the cultural movement that is hip-hop. The day will feature master classes, unforgettable performances, inspiring Cold Table Convos and street fashion. Highly respected US hip-hop guru and journalist Sway Calloway will also host the "SwayColdCyphers" — freestyles with some of the best local South African artists.

Day two then shifts to a full focus on the music, with fire sets expected from South African trailblazers Ricky Rick, Rouge, and Nasty C, and with a final shut down set from Post Malone.

"Hip-hop in Africa has also grown to a space where international artists are looking to Africa for inspiration and collaboration," explains Castle Lite's brand director Silke Bucker. "[It's] a space where our artists are setting the trends and driving the global hip-hop sound and narrative."

Castle Lite Unlocks has quickly become the focal point for hip-hop in the rainbow nation, with previous performances from Kanye West, Chance The Rapper, Bryson Tiller and Travis Scott, cementing the festival's reputation as the only place to experience the best hip-hop on the continent.

Tickets are available now via Webticket and Pick 'n' Pay stores across SA. Check Castle Lite Unlock's site for more info.
