Popular music festival Rocking The Daisies put on ice again!

Rocking The Daisies hosts thousands of festival goers from across the country every year. The popular music festival has hosted some of the world’s biggest acts but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival has been put on hold.


Rocking The Daisies has been put on hold for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an official statement released earlier today, they wrote that it is a sad day for festival goers and staff as they announce that both the Johannesburg and Cape Town festivals will take place in 2022.

A portion of the statement reads,

“Our team has worked tirelessly behind the scenes alongside all the relevant officials, and stakeholders, in order to do everything in our power to make this year’s event viable. However, with the latest announcement of increased, stricter regulations, as well as the ongoing uncertainty of the months to come in South Africa, it has become clear that an event of our size in 2021 is not an option, and most importantly is not safe for our most important stakeholders – you, our loyal fans and supporters.”

The statement continues to express gratitude to existing ticket holders who opted not to get a refund in 2020 saying that their support means a lot to them.


Although Rocking The Daisies has a strict no refund policy, they have mentioned that tickets bought for the 2021 festival will be rolled over to 2022.

If one is still keen on a refund, they have also decided to allow festival goers the option to have their tickets refunded during a refund window which will only be open between 12h and 30th of July.


The dates for the 2022 Rocking The Daisies Festivals have already been confirmed. The Cape Town festival will take place between the 7th and 9th of October 2022 while the Johannesburg festival will be between the 8th and 9th of October 2022.

The local artists that were on the lineup for the 2021 festival will still be apart of the 2022 festival but there is still uncertainty about whether all the international artists will still perform at Rocking the Daisies.

“The team is working alongside all international management teams to confirm their attendance for next year.”
