Daisies, as it’s called by the regulars, is South Africa’s biggest outdoor festival. It happens on the Cloof Wine Estate just near Darling, where the spring wildflowers cover the fields. You’ll find gourmet food trucks serving all kinds of tasty treats, a lively campsite filled with festival-goers from around the world, a swimming dam and not forgetting multiple stages featuring the best local and international acts.


From 5-7 October 2018, festival-goers can expect a multi-faceted and multi-sensory action-packed weekend featuring the best local and international entertainment including music, comedy, art and film.

There’ll be hundreds of top local acts and some of the world’s most inspiring artists performing across multiple stages. Expect 3 days of camping, food stalls, good times, and incredible memories to be made.

The festival is 100% cashless this year, meaning it’ll be faster, more efficient, and safer for all festival-goers.


Walking the Daisies (WTD) is an annual two-day hike that starts in Cape Town on Thursday, 4 October and ends on Friday 5 October with an arrival at the RTD Music Festival in Darling. RTD festival developed the initiative into a group experience, growing the number of walkers each year.
