If music festivals and green living are close to your heart, don’t miss the carbon-neutral, eco-friendly Cape music festival, Rocking the Daisies, which takes place in Darling on October 9-11, 2009.
Since its launch three years ago, Rocking the Daisies has been on a mission to show people the meaning of “Play hard, tread lightly”. This year, 12 000 eco-friendly music enthusiasts are expected to congregate on the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling for the festival.
The main stage will host top local acts Goldfish, Just Jinjer, Prime Circle, Desmond and The Tutus, Freshlyground and many more.
Performers will be sharing the spotlight with the natural environment. Each year, beds of wild flowers and daisies along the West Coast unearth themselves to breathe the spring air – which is where the festival gets its name. Each year, festival-goers share in this natural phenomenon.
Rocking the Daisies has a top line-up, a flourish of added entertainment, a striking venue and great facilities. Designated camping and campervan, caravan and mobile home areas are open to festival-goers, while the Kreef Hotel offers more luxurious accommodation.
In-store tickets are not on sale until a month before the festival, but for those who are eager to secure their spots early, tickets are available through Webtickets.
