  • Iconic music festival Rocking the Daisies is back.
  • The three-day festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg this year.
  • Phase 1 tickets go on sale on Thursday, 26 May.

Rocking the Daisies is back after a two-year hiatus following the coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers announced on Thursday that the iconic music festival, in partnership with Johnnie Walker, returns bigger and better in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

"Expanding on a phenomenal two-decade run of unprecedented live music rosters and culture-shifting moments, this year’s festivities are set to not only continue the brand’s history of pre-eminence in the arts and entertainment spaces, but also introduce exciting innovations in the social, experiential and technology arenas," reads a press release.

The three-day festival will take place at Cloof Wine Estate in the Western Cape on 7–9 October.

Rocking the Daisies will also bring its "comprehensive, larger-than-life experience" to Johannesburg on 9 October at Supersport Park in Centurion.

Rocking the Daisies has officially partnered with iconic whiskey brand Johnnie Walker, a union that "is so seamless because of the mutual and storied commitment of both brands to developing, supporting and cultivating creativity through quality, multi-sensory experiences," according to Shannon Valstar, General Manager of Steyn Entertainment.

"Whether it's been via observing and adjusting our environmental sustainability practises over the years, giving opportunities to emerging musical talents around the world, or improving on our logistical offerings to make the Daisies experience the best it can be for attendees; innovation has always been the foundation of what we strive to achieve with the festival. Keep walking exemplifies this mindset poignantly, and we are very excited for everyone to experience what we collectively have in store for you in 2022".
