ROCKING THE DAISIES
It might be held in the small Western Cape town of Darling, but this event is every bit as dynamic as the biggest music festivals in the world. Now in its 13th year, this award-winning green festival has featured hundreds of local and international acts on numerous stages dedicated to different music genres.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind, multi-sensory and multi-faceted experience in SA. Locally, you won’t find anything else like it,” says Zethu Gqola, Rocking the Daisies Head of Marketing. A lot of time and effort also go into the design and digital look of the festival to ensure a world-class event.
