First off, I’d like to apologize for posting this a little bit late – as I write, the festival is well under way. Still, there is one more day to go and if you have the means to do so, you might want to go and experience Rocking the Daisies. I got wind of the event from Backpackers.com:
Rocking the Daisies is an eco-friendly music and lifestyle festival taking place in Darling, a small town in the be-flowered Cape West Coast area.
Spring time in the Cape is a sight to see… The spectacular displays of the Western Cape’s floral kingdom are quite something to behold.
Not only does this relatively new (but very popular) festival offer some of the very best local talent, as well as an international guest star, Eagle Eye Cherry, it’s also one of the greenest festivals in the country.
So, if you’re near Cape Town this coming weekend, and fancy dancing in the daisies, all weekend long, see if you can snap up a ticket and head on over to flower-ville.
Tickets for the weekend cost R320 (27 euros).
The ticket price is not bad, is it? Of course, if you are not anywhere near the Cape, then you might not be able to catch it anymore. I really like the idea of a green music festival, however. I just hope that the organizers have been able to maintain the cleanliness of the environment – in all respects – where the festival is taking place.
