Being South Africa’s premier eco-friendly music and lifestyle festival, Rocking the Daisies raises the bar every year, incorporating innovative environmentally conscious products into the festival and spreading the message of ‘play hard, tread lightly’. Rocking the Daisies has made it its mission not only to educate others on greener lifestyles but also how to take it home and incorporate it into their own lives.
From transport initiatives, solar and wind powered electricity, bio-diesel generators and LED lighting to complimentary bio-degradable soaps and shampoos, recycling and tree planting initiatives. Rocking the Daisies explores every avenue to make this the most carbon neutral green event possible. Year six promises to be even bigger, better, happier, funnier, more colourful, more exciting and definitely more entertaining.
An experience not to missed that marks the beginning of the South African summer!
