10 YEARS OF ROCKING THE DAISIES | HEADLINE ACTS AND TICKET PRICES

Rocking the Daisies survived 2018!

While we have had many great memories at Rocking the Daisies over the years, this year we were in Lisbon and didn’t attend (that’s not the only reason). But this didn’t stop us from reflecting on the mayhem that was happening in Cape Town as people were refused the opportunity to bring alcohol into the festival, and were charged for camping.

It got us thinking on the past 10 years of Rocking the Daisies – regarding what headline acts were, and what the ticket prices were during phase 1.
