This year’s Walking the Daisies will see 40 people walking on a beautiful 2 day, 60km hike through the West Coast wild flower region via beaches, conservation areas and farmlands on route to the festival. Fruit and Veg City are back on board for the second year running to make sure all the walkers are well fed and looked after during the journey. The overnight camp at Silverstroomstrand is set to be a great little social gathering where friends are encouraged to visit for a braai and camp with the walkers. Once again all walkers will receive a free festival ticket and other goodies in return for their commitment to a carbon-neutral festival journey.
Cycle to Daisies 2010 will once again reward 100 people for “playing hard, and treading lightly” by giving them 50% off their festival ticket. Cyclists will also be able hire bikes in advance for the trip or have the opportunity to donate their old bikes to BEN (Bicycling Empowerment Network) after the festival.
For news, route maps and info on how to register for both initiatives please visit http://www.rockingthedaisies.com. Numbers are limited, so don’t delay.
Female festival goers can once again enjoy the luxuries of camping at the Levi’s® Daisy Den at Rocking the Daisies. The Den will provide ladies only with the opportunity to lounge on a lazy ottoman, freshen up in front of a sparkling mirror and enjoy private, luxury bathroom facilities – everything needed to make sure they stay gorgeous for the whole festival. Ladies will also be able to experience the newly launched Levi’s® Curve ID jeans, with the opportunity to be custom measured and fitted to discover their ideal Levi’s® Curve ID fit and have a fab festival pic taken. They will also receive an exclusive Daisy Den 10% discount voucher to use in Levi’s® Stores at a later date.
The event awareness campaign for 2010 will focus on Water. Rocking the Daises does not sell any bottled water at the festival. Organisers instead aim to promote the benefits of utilising our natural resources in a sustainable manner through available water points, purified water stations and reusable water bottles.
Rocking the Daisies’ Green House, an area dedicated to promoting green living initiatives, will play host to the festival’s green supporters including long standing green partner, Hemporium. The Green House will also feature a Conscious Cinema, showcasing the latest environmental and social titles, drawing attention this year to water issues. The Conscious Cinema will enlighten danced-out festival goers through thought-provoking films and documentaries such as FLOW: For the Love of Water, Water – The Great Mystery, Blue Gold, One Water and HOME.
At the Rocking the Daisies we believe in all the good things in life. Check out this year’s confirmed line up for the Rocking the Daisies festival – enjoy!
