Rocking the Daisies, South Africa’s most exciting music and lifestyle festival, returns in 2012 bigger, better and more vibrant than ever. With the preparations for their milestone 7th edition already well under way, this year’s RTD promises to be as magical, and of course as socially and ecologically conscious, as we’ve ever seen it. Taking place over the first weekend in October (4th-7th) in the picturesque grounds of the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling, the festival has extended its party hours to the Thursday evening, allowing revellers to pitch up their tents and enjoy the festivities a whole day earlier than last year. But that’s not all. 2012 will see one of the most successful British bands of recent times headlining the festival, reformed and as raw and powerful as ever, RTD welcomes Bloc Party to spearhead this year’s collective festive experience. Joining them will be a myriad of local rock and electronic greats, from Beast and Isochronous to Arno Castens and Moving House. And while the music is central to the fun, it’s never all there is. Wine tasting, cinema, theatre, art installations and food and drink of all varieties will all make up part of the entertainment, as well as a special playground area for the kids. As ever, all those attending are heavily encouraged to be as ecologically conservative as possible, from their method of transport to and from the festival (why not get in on RTD’s car pool initiative or walk and get into the festival for free!) to how they conduct themselves whilst on site. RTD is not only recognised as one of the most enjoyable festivals in South Africa but also one of the greenest. The awards don’t lie. With full weekend tickets still available for as little as R520 (£40), this is an opportunity not to be missed. And remember people, most important of all, if you are a part of Rocking the Daisies 2012 be sure to  ‘Rock Hard, Tread Lightly.’
