So that no one misses a single minute of the entire festival experience, the Rocking the Daisies
crew has put together a number of transport options to help everyone make their way to festival in style.
See how a simple a change in travel efforts can make a huge difference to our world. 100 select festival-goers will walk along the West Coast to the festival, taking in the signature Cape landscape as part of this eco-initiative run by Culture Talent and Rocking the Daisie
s, and sponsored by Fruit and Veg City: Walking the Daisies.
Walking the Daisies has teamed up with GreenPop and the Sunflower Fund this year. Walkers will be asked to each donate R150 that will go towards a tree that will be planted on behalf of each walker, as well as a sunflower bandana as a contribution to the fantastic work done by the Sunflower Fund.
Walking the Daisies applications are open via a Fruit and Veg City Facebook Tab
which hosts a fun and educational nutritional quiz in order to get everyone one step closer to applying for the Walk. Applicants will be rated on their Nutritional IQ and will receive a discount voucher of up to 15% on their next shop at Fruit and Veg City's Food Lover's Market Tokai.
This year, 100 like-minded cycling enthusiasts will set off early on Friday, 5 October and peddle their way to the festival. Due to high demand, the tickets for the Cycle to Daisies adventure have already been sold out.
Carpool:Rocking the Daisies
is working with goCarShare to help people share car journeys. An internationally acclaimed carpooling system, goCarShare offers a great way to save money, help those that need a lift to get together, all the while doing their bit to reduce their carbon emissions.
The Carpool option is built around Facebook
, allowing one to find people who have friends in common and similar interests. "Life's a journey. It's not just about where you want to go, it's how you get there. So if you have an empty seat, or want a lift - share. That's the joy of goCarShare."
Daisy Train from Johannesburg:
Whether one is partying and chatting to your mates or just watching some of the amazingly beautiful country landscapes roll past your window, The Daisy Train gives festival-goers a classic build up to the festival, and makes for an exciting beginning to a weekend that promises a four-day event filled with friends, music, sunshine and general Daisies craziness.
