  • Rocking the Daisies has announced its first international act.
  • British multi-platinum selling, electronic pop group Clean Bandit will be heading to SA for the iconic music festival.
  • The festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg over the weekend of 7 – 9 October.


British multi-platinum selling, electronic pop group Clean Bandit is heading to South Africa for the 2022 edition of the Rocking the Daisies music festival.

Organisers on Tuesday announced the group as the first of its international acts.

"The multi-instrumental sensation has awed fans across the globe with their hypnotising, orchestral-esque live showcases for years. Having released its culture-shifting debut project New Eyes (2014), later followed by What Is Love in 2018, the group has built their names on their incredibly rare and seamless ability to produce on universal anthems time and time again – with impressive collaborations alongside prominent artists in their own right such as Sean Paul, Ellie Goulding, Zara Larsson, Demi Lovato and more", reads a press release.  

"Among the slew of impressive accolades accrued in their career, in 2014 Clean Bandit broke Spotify UK's record for the most streamed song of all time for their infectious single Rather Be. But they are likely most popularly known for the ubiquitous Rockabye and Symphony anthems, which are still among some of the highest streamed YouTube songs ever, with Rockabye clocking in over 2.6 billion views."

On Monday organisers announced a slew of local acts which will inlcude: BLXCKIE, DBN GOGO, Will Linley, Sun El Musician, Focalistic, TxC, Sio, Matthew Mole, Aymos, Nasty C and Kid Fonque, among others

The festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg over the weekend of 7 – 9 October.

Phase 1 tickets for both legs of the festival go live on 26 May 2022 via www.quicket.com.
