Dear Daisies Family,
Due to the devastating floods and unprecedented weather in the Western Cape over the last 5 days – on top of the continued rainfall throughout the month of September during our key site build period, the Daisies executive team – in agreement with our title sponsor, Johnnie Walker – have made the difficult decision to postpone #JWxRTD across both cities. This decision has been made after extensive correspondence with Safety teams, Suppliers, Stakeholders, and city officials off the back of official statements made by the Western Cape Government regarding the disaster – taking into consideration the damage to infrastructure, as well as current and forecasted risks to all role-players, most importantly you – our valued festivalgoers.
#JWxRTD will now officially take place from 17 – 19 November, 2023, with the confirmation of most key headliners, including Stormzy, The Vamps, J.I.D, Denzel Curry and more, still set to perform on the revised dates, with comms underway with all teams who are trying their utmost best to make this work.
Our team would like to thank our incredible title partner – Johnnie Walker, alongside our headline partners, Heineken, Maybelline, and Savanna – and the many stakeholders behind Africa’s biggest music & lifestyle festival for their continued support, and guidance, during this unpredictable time for our festivals.
At this time, our hearts go out to all those affected by the weather disaster that has hit the Western Cape – in support, Rocking the Daisies and Johnnie Walker will be donating to the Gift of the Givers Flood Relief Fund with a percentage of all tickets retained by festival-goers, as we sympathise with those more severely affected than us.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we navigate this period alongside our extended Daisies family. Ticket holders would have already received formal communication, please swipe for FAQ’s.
