Rocking the Daisies – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay
Summer’s here and, along with it, some awesome outdoor music concerts. These photos of the Rocking the Daisies festival, held in Darling from October 9-11, are sure to get you in the mood for summer partying.
The weather at Rocking the Daisies this year was fantastic, the surroundings were comfortable and well laid-out and generally everyone was in a great mood – very happy-go-lucky – like this girl, who was skipping gaily to meet her friends.
The signposts near the stage area, telling you where to head for food, drinks and other lovely things you could buy.
Even the mannequins were stylish at Rocking the Daisies this year. This one was at the stall that sold sort of hippyish clothing, but you could also find hats, hemp clothing, graphic tees, jewellery ... and there were even on-site ATMs!
The bassist from Captain Stu, a sort of jazzy-ska band. They were really fun and definitely one to watch. Everybody was bouncing around to their music!
Two of the members of Rus Nerwich and the Collective Imagination, one of my favourite bands of the festival. Their sound is a hybrid of hip-hop, jazz, funk and pop, with a splash of world music, and it all adds up to funkaliciousness.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
