ROCK­ING THE DAISIES

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - GETAWAYS -

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.
