Rocking The Daisies 2014

The dates for Rocking the Daisies 2014 have been announced as taking place from Thursday, 2 October to Sunday, 5 October 2014. For the past two years, Rocking the Daisies has sold out well before the gates opened, with last year’s event selling out a full five weeks in advance.

This high demand for Daisies tickets has resulted in the need for a more secure ticketing and accreditation system. In order to combat fraud, the re-selling of tickets at higher prices and to improve security at the festival, Daisies has adopted an internationally aligned ticketing format.
Each festival attendee will need to register with his or her ID or passport number
• Sales are limited to four tickets per buyer via credit card, EFT or cash deposit
• The buyer will need their friends’ name, email address and cell number when buying a ticket for them (it is recommended that the friend is also pre-registered)
• The friends’ ticket will only be validated once they have completed the registration process themselves
• Everyone’s original ID, passport or driver’s license is subject to a check against their ticket upon arrival at the festival (no certified copies accepted)
• If an ID or passport number doesn’t match the ticket of the attendee then they will be denied entry into the festival
• If you are not 18 years old by the time the festival starts you will be unable to register or attend the festival
• Any incomplete registrations will be invalid

From 9 – 23 May, pre-registration will be open to the public. Those who pre-register will get exclusive first access to buying RTD tickets and the bonus of a discounted ticket price. Ticket prices for those who pre-register:
• Full Weekend Pass – R695 (full price is R750)
• Two Day Pass (Sat/Sun) – R595 (full price is R650)

From 24 – 26 May, pre-registration will be closed.
• On closing of pre-registration a notification will be sent to remind all those who pre-registered that they will receive notification when ticketing goes live on 27 May

From 27 May – 1 June, ticket sales will be open exclusively to those who have pre-registered and those who didn’t pre-register by 23 May will not be able to buy tickets yet.
• A notification email and SMS will be sent to remind all those who pre-registered when ticketing goes live on 27 May
• Pre-registered people will have six days in which to pay for their discounted tickets
• On 2 June any unpaid tickets will go back into the ticketing system and be on sale at full price
• As tickets are limited and subject to availability, pre-registering does not guarantee or reserve anyone a ticket, but it will move festival goers one step closer to it
• Official ticketing channels are Rocking the Daisies’ official website, Facebook page and directly here
• Please do not trust any third party ticket portals, websites or sellers!

On 2 June, full price ticket sales open and all remaining tickets (if available) will only be sold at full price. Should tickets sell out before 2 June, full price ticket sales will not take place
Full Ticket Prices
• Full Weekend Pass – R750
• Two Day Pass (Sat/Sun) – R650
