    Posted by on Sep 16th, 2013

    UPDATE: competition is closed folks. Thanks for entering. You comments were awesome. Wish i could give all tickets.

    Now that ALL the Rocking The Daisies 2013 tickets have been sold out i bet you’re miserable that all your friends are going and you were too slow to get your hands on a precious ticket hey…after all it’s gonna be another epic 3 day festival, the most anticipated annual live music festival South Africa has to offer. Well don’t stress that you’re gonna miss out because daddy has a RTD 2013 full weekend pass to give away and it has your name on it. By now you should already know that the headline acts will be Skunk Anansie, The Hives, alt -j and Boys Noize, but there are also gonna be plenty of other quality musicians performing at the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling from 3-6 October.

    Does a full weekend pass sound good…well then keep reading.

    rocking the daisies

    Ok so here’s the drill.

    To get your hands on that elusive FULL WEEKEND PASS you can choose to do one of two things. Enter on Twitter or leave a comment beneath this post. Or double your chances and do both.

    • Firstly for those on Twitter: go follow @RockingTheDaisy and @LifeisSavage to show some love and what not. Then once you’ve done that send out the following tweet which will count as an entry.

    ” Win a full weekend pass to Rocking The Daisies 2013 with @lifeissavage and #RTD2013 “

    As simple as that.

    • Secondly: you can also enter by leaving a comment beneath this post saying which local and international band/act you are most looking forward to see performing. You can view the full line-up HERE to make your choice. Remember to leave your correct email address. Also feel free to justify why you need those tickets. I like listening to stories so if you got then go wild.

    Now hears the thing… i will give you till this Friday (20 September) to get your entries in, but i will pick a winner from only one of the entry methods, so either a Twitter winner or a comment winner. It’s obvious then that you should enter both ways if you wanna maximise your chance.

    For more info on Rocking The Daisies visit the website HERE and follow things on Facebook HERE.

    Now get involved.

    AHHH YEAHH!! Would love to win these tickets so I can go support George Daniel.. Fell in love with this oke’s music after checking him at #Grietfest this year..

    I need these tickets to escape this Organic Spaceship called Earth as I’m getting tired of all these talking apes chirping me their sorrows, a trip to Daisies would go a long way in forgetting a bit about my normal day to day life. I just want to be free and rocking hard, leaving my mundane life behind for a few days..

    Thanks boet that is all!!

    I have never missed a Daisies…ever. I flew home from London early in 2008 just so I would make the festival. It’s also the week before my birthday and it would be a pretty crappy start to being 25 if all my favourite humans were there and I was stuck at home.
    If I could see Hives as an early birthday present that would also ensure that being a quarter century really isn’t going to be too terrible!!!

    CHRISTIAN TIGER SCHOOL is at the top of my (ridiculously lengthy) list. I NEED that ticket to be there to absorb all their trippy, psychedelic goodness.

    Boys Noize is pretty damn amazing too.

    PLEASE x 2.83 billion-frafillion-illion-ILLION-ILLION.

    Thanks in advance, Daddy.

    Locally, Al Bairre – they are talented and fantastic and hilarious!
    Internationally, Alt-J, for that Something Good song – speaks to the soul!

    Natalie says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Whoooooooooo!!!!!

    Looking forward to Alt-j because who even writes a song about Last Exit To Brooklyn & a prostitute called Tralala! (Fitzpleasure) They’re totally artsy & I love it!

    Also looking forward to Al Bairre! Can you get more indie than these guys? They don’t get nearly enough recognition for their art!

    Once, I was driving in England (Northampton to Bournemouth) late on a Friday night. I was listening to Radio 1 and the DJ played this A M A ZI N G song by Boys Noize. Totally blew my mind! It was like 2 years ago and I still haven’t forgotten about it. Anyway, listened to the DJ to try and capture the name of it but he said it so fast I missed it.

    I had no idea Boys Noize were even playing at RTD 2013 until recently.

    Now, I have the Shazam app on my phone. So, I need these tickets to get to RTD 2013 to listen to Boys Noize so I can hold my phone up when the song comes on, find out what it’s called and buy it!

    Reuniting the cousins

    My best friends in the world are my two cousins Rox and Tash. They are the life blood that flows through me, they know me inside and out, and will always be there whenever the little bird calls for some cousinly love. Our partying ended last year just before Daisies due to a silly misunderstanding between Rox and Tash, so sadly I ended up going without them. We had always gone to RTD together for so many years now and I cannot bare to think of another year without my beauties with me. Recently they’ve started chatting, trying to patch things up, so I’d love to surprise them with our ongoing tradition of camping at RTD in our usual madness, spreading the love and reuniting us as the three overly excited cousins, who look kinda the same, talk over one another and share the endless laughing with all who is able to hear our chuckles.

    Our favourite SA bands are Woodstock Mafia, Al Bairre and The Plastics

    These free tickets wouldn’t just be a gift it would make me the happiest girl alive <3

    I would LOVE to see the hives – live!!

    Also, if I don’t get my hands on a ticket, I may fall into a mild state of depression from the 3rd of October. Just saying. How can they sell out a month away??

    Corlia says:

    The Hives. Grew up listening to them and Tyrannosaurus Hives was the first rock album I bought.

    Locally I have to say Christian Tiger School. Always a vibe.

    Thanks!

    Keen to see the epic local line-up jam alongside massive international bands.

    Al-Bairre. Beach Part, ShortStraw, alt-j, the Hives and PH fat… Cant beat them!!

    This is the last time I will get to watch a festival for a while as I move back to Durbs for work at the end of the year where we are deprived of music festivals like this one ( except Splashy- we still have that).

    Make a Brothers year!

    I would love to see Al Bairre live again as they interact so well with the crowds what with the crowd rafting and inducing spastic dancing and just generally being funny. I love the fact that they have violins and cellos and ukuleles and twins and have described themselves as “exquisite hegemonic symphonic indie pop” and an “ice cream of orchestral sounds” because it is most certainly true.

    If I do win this ticket, I’d look forward to seeing Alt-J and The Hives as I love Alt-J for their absurd lyrics (I mean, who writes a love song about holding your loved one hostage with soggy clothes and bricks and then eating them because you love them so much. I know – or hope – it’s metaphoric, but still) and The Hives for the memories of my little sister (she’s five and I see her once a year) dancing and singing along that spring to mind whenever I hear them.

    I really hope to get this ticket because it was supposed to be my first festival and birthday present (my mom didn’t think it would sell out so quickly) and I have always wanted to attend Rocking the Daisies and do badly now as a result of the exquisite lineup. I would not go so far to say that I deserve this ticket as that would be arrogant and presumptuous, but I do dearly hope to have it. Thank you for reading this, even if I am not chosen.

    Alt-J is one of my favourite bands and I’ve been dying to see them play. My 2 best friends have their tickets and I didn’t manage to get mine on time. I’d honestly be the happiest girl in the world if i won a ticket and I’d rock Rocking the Daisies like its never been rocked before!

    Mario says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I just want to make out with my new girlfriend while Alt-J ∆ plays which is during my birthday month.

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    My girlfriends was taken last night by Michael Flatley and his riverdance crew.
    I need the ticket so I can listen to Boys Noize, learn how to dance and win my girlfriend back.

    Please help me show the world what a p035 Michael Flatley is once and for all.

    Alex says:

    Local: Matthew Mole
    International: The Hives. so excited to see them, but all the international acts look insane.

    I’ll be honest. There’s a girl going. I need this ticket, savagely.
    (Plus I’ve never been to Rocking the Daisies, always having a test or something in the way)

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    The Hives and ALT J.

    Ironically my boyfriend sent me this link to enter and it seems he’s a sneaky romantic and left a cute comment saying he wants to make out with me while ALT J is playing… Ill forfeit the prize and u give it to him :D

    Thanks for the comp Life Of Savage :)

    I am dying to see Bateleur! Literally dying there music is soul moving!
    Christian Tiger School vibes of vibrations that could bob your head off.

    My better half and I went for the first time last year and absolutely fell inlove with the festival. The vibe is indescribable! The togetherness this festival brings can’t be measured and is something I don’t want to not be a part of this year! That feeling you get when laying in your tent sometime after 4 in the morning feeling tired, fooled by yourself thinking that you can call it a night – when just as you lay your head down the music that pulsates through the entire farm fills you and just makes you not wanna be the pansy that “gave in”.

    Please please pick us!

    Bateleur!!! Christian Tiger School!! Favs!!!

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Oh my gosh – Daddy!!!

    I am so so so excited to be able to watch The Hives. And Al Bairre which reminds me of Stellenbosch nights. And of course my fav – Desmond and the Tutu’s!!! They are fantastic!! I’ve never ever ever been to a concert or a music festival before, so this would be the ultimate win for me! Plus, I’ve never won anything in my life besides a packet of gemsquash in BINGO . haha for reals.

    Please please please pick me! pick me! pick me! Every single friend of mine is going, but seeing as I’m still a student, my budget is a little bit tight. And this would obvs make the best birthday prezzie ever!!! I mean after all…. memories is what makes life worthwhile right?

    So … long story short – pick me and I will be eternally grateful!!!

    Thanks :) x

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Wow, tough question. I’m huge fan of the local scene and I think our industry & artists have grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years. i’m going to break the rules slightly and go with two acts.

    THE DIRTY SKIRTS: I’ve been eagerly awaiting their return, and if it ever would happen. Their last album was seriously underrated, and I have no doubt they will surprise many with an absolute beast of a performance.
    AL BAIRRE: Been tracking their career since their early days. They have a seriously energetic show, and would get any old tannies feet taping. AND THEY HAVE TWINS.

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    SO, before I die of a serious case of FOMO!!!! I NEED to win this ticket simply because every time I hear someone mention Rocking the Daisies I die a little inside because I don’t have a ticket :(

    Knowing this is going to be thee festival of the year I am willing to do anything to be there! They say desperate times calls for desperate measures ;) so PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE!

    I’d love to jam along with Alt-J, The Dirty skirts, The Hives as well as Niskerone (although seen a million times-I know its a guaranteed jam!)

    x

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Skunk Anansie! Woot!

    Danyal Wainstein says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Okay, so I would really love to see many of the artists at this year’s RTDs, but if I absolutely had to choose I would pick alt-j and Goldfish… I have only seen Goldfish once before, but they completely blew me away with their live instrumentals (no pun intended!).

    Why do I think I deserve this oh so special of prizes? Well, where to begin. This year has been CRAZY, like super crazy! I handed in my master’s dissertation about month ago, and I tell you, writing a dissertation is no joke… BUSY day and night for months! Only now an I getting over the exhaustion… I couldn’t do much part time work this year as a consequence, and so I am left without a Daisies ticket. BUT, if I were to be given one it would be the BEST frikken graduation present ever! I’m also really looking to blow off some steam and celebrate my hard work this year! So if you are reading this, just know that my APPRECIATION for this ticket extends beyond all the nights and days, and weekends, and weekdays, and months of hard work!! And that I LOVE this festival!! Really, REALLY love it! Your ticket wouldn’t be wasted on me… I’m looking to make up lost time with friends, in a BIG way.

    Lady LUCK, and Karma, here’s to hoping!! Thank you for the opportunity LIFEISSAVAGE!!!
    Xxx ;)

    Need the tickets because I just got news I got the job I wanted in my dream career and what better way to celebrate than at Daisies?

    Pleaseeee! Help a broke student out!

    Fingers crossed. :)

    Dear Daddy

    I don’t really know how to tell you this, but I’ve decided to sell myself for candy at Rocking The Daisies this year. I think I first realised it when I finally changed my underwear under a streetlight on Long Street, with Desmond and his several Tutus busting through my vintage headphones that now smell like elbow sweat. I have done some quite savage things in my past, like when I put anti-bacterial soap in my illegitimate baby cousins eyes to win tickets to Daisies last year or when I told the little guy that Santa doesn’t exist and that actually, I ate all his cookies. That was just for a laugh. I’m sure you’re still scarred from the sight of my frost bitten earlobes when I asked you to kindly pour that beer down my oesophagus, but we all know that we can forgive and forget, as I have forgiven you for peeing on my couch cushions when I stole your Hannah Montana underwear. I was only doing you a favour. I promise I won’t tell the authorities that you stole the whale from the crowd last year, but I’m still waiting to hear the results from that blood sample. I guess we could both do without the criminal record, but I wouldn’t have my trusty glass eye if it weren’t for our attempts to transform small people into Eskimos with alcoholic whipped cream and duck feathers. It’s no secret that we’ve had some great memories together and, despite the fact that you almost ruined our friendship when you released my collection of butterflies into ‘the cauldron of death’ you created with a deodorant bottle and a lighter, I don’t think we should let our stories come to an end. So how’s to swing a brother a ticket to this beaut of a festival and make sure you stock up on the drinks. I’ll bring the peanut butter and a killer attitude. Going to be great to polish floors with you again savage!
    Send my love to that filthy amphibian, Leonardo.
    Love always
    Benni

    Well to be brutally honest I have never, ever, ever been to RTD before and from what I hear it is beyond epic, beyond mooiness, beyond crazy & wild. – Yeah I know – I SUCK BIG time for not ever being at one. But hopefully Daddy can help me out by getting me there, so really looking forward to the awesome lineup including Goodluck, Mathew Gold, Desmond and the Tutus, geez and so many more. Where the heck have I been all this time? Pleeeeeeaaasee daddy won’t you send me to RTD. Your best boy Chim-Chim :)

    Skunk Anansie

    I never used to listen to rock/alternative back in the day, I was a house and techno type of guy all my way through school, but as they say, your taste start to mature and my taste just got like a good moldy cheese, in fact it actually went backwards and I started to listen to Skunk Anansie and co. Now I’m all about old school tunes and could not care about the rest, the stinkier the better :)

    Thanks!

    Normadic Orchestra
    The Black Cat Bones
    Desmund and the Tutus
    Shortstraw

    and oh well The Hives…

    Last year exactly the same happened so I should’ve learned from my mistake but come on who has time to go buy tickets these days and yes I could´ve got Online but got no credit card etc….
    I know to a certain extent it is my own fault cause I should´ve got the tickets ages ago, but I honestly think it would not sell out so quickly…

    But please feel it in your heart and all that crap to help me to get 2 tickets for me and my gf and my freaking birthday!

    It would be more than appreciated and you would make my year!!

    So hopefully you/your team can help somehow!!!

    Thanks for your time and enjoy your day!

    hello, im from a place called Hermanus in the western cape and have been looking forward to seeing ALT-J since i heard they were playing at RTD2013, all my friends are going to this amazing and beautiful show but slow poke me was too late in getting a ticket :(

    I would love to experience Rocking the daisies for myself as I think it will be one of the most amazing journeys to complete in anyone’s lifetime.

    As always the band that I most badly want to see is Al Bairre. There music is amazing and the band members are the biggest legends ever! This year Rocking the Daisies falls on my birthday and I was promised a ticket as a present so I didn’t buy one and now they’ve sold out :-( Not only do I really want to be at RTD but I also want to celebrate with all my friends who are gonna be there!

    Floyd lavine vs. Tulz…. matter of fact, every single artist at the beach bar.
    The best feeling in the world was last year at the beach bar, on a saturday afternoon, drink in hand, sun on skin, friends all dancing in unison to the minimal house beatzzzzz.
    eeeeish i need a ticket:) :)

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I ABSOLUTELY muuust see ALT-J , i’m not quire sure when i will get the opportunity to see him again. Imagine my horror when i discovered that Tickets were sold out while i was waiting with baited breath for pay day..Then the worst possible thing that could have happened to me, happened to me.

    I have dreamt of Rocking the daisies…Make a dream come true.

    Also, I would do anything for this ticket- Dare me.

    Aziz says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I’m living paycheck to paycheck & my non-life would become a real thing if I won this ticket!

    Internationally, I would mostly look forward to seeing Alt-j. Finally seeing them live
    would improve my life immensely. Especially hearing Taro live is food to the soul of
    every photography student. (The song is written about Gerda Taro & Robert Capa,
    two war photographers.)

    Locally, I would live to see The Plastics. They are really so
    good & should be considered an international act!

    Hope to win this ticket! I need this!

    Amy van der Merwe says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I would love to see alt-j and Al Bairre!

    As it is my 21st birthday during the week after Daisies, this festival would be the perfect way to celebrate it! It would be the most spectacular birthday present.

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    The Hives
    Beach Party
    The Plastics
    Al Bairre

    Regardless why wouldn’t I want to spend a weekend in sunny Cape Town with fellow festival goers?
    I wanna get savage!

    I would offer my wheelchair and crawl to the stage if I can see The Hives and Hog Hoggidy Hog!

    I just bought this awesome new free wheel for my wheelchair that turns it into a three wheeler. After Ramfest I thought it a good idea to beat the rough terrain, but, this little thing set me back more than a pretty penny, so alas, no daisy rocking for me. Unless….

    Sam says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Daddy LifeisSavage, I must say because I am feeling patriotic I am most looking forward to Al-Bairre out of all of them.

    But it was so difficult to choose because I would sell my body to see most of the bands that would be blowing my mind if I were to be the chosen one to win that ticket!
    I would spend the whole weekend of the 3 – 6 of OCTOBER partying my ass of celebrating what would be the most glorious triumph.

    You mentioned that you like listening to stories, well here’s one now:
    Once upon a time, there was a girl whose dream it was to go to rocking the daisies in that lucky year that was 2013. It just wasnt that lucky for her.
    She was a silly girl that thought that she had time before she could buy her rocking the daisies ticket! But alas… her time ran out.
    Her friends looked at her in disdain when she told them she couldn’t go… She looked on with tears in her eyes and jealousy in her heart when amongst themselves their excitement for this astounding event made them glow. It made them look unreal! Like pregnant women bursting with the glow of expectation! – even the guys.
    This girl’s heart was saddened.

    Was there no hope? Was there no chance that this unlucky, silly girl’s luck might change?
    to be continued…

    Tshegofatso says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    I, Tshegofatso would absolutely loooooooove to go to Rocking the Daisy’s simply because I actually want a friend of mine to be able to go so actually I’d be winning the tickets for her.
    Her name is Tarryn and she is this awesome chika/surfer/crazyhead/a diamond in the rough.

    Now you’re probably wondering exactly why someone would enter a competition for a friend, and its really because coming from Johannesburg to Cape Town is a definite culture shock, lovely yes, but a shock nonetheless.
    And so making friends is hard in general nevermind in another city, so far from home. And Tarryn was just one of the few amazing people who welcomed with open arms and strives to show me all the cool things in CT one of them was (and still is) Rocking the daisies but we were late and tickets are now finito and well, here i am.

    So that would be the reason as to why I (or rather she) deserve to win the weekend pass, Rocking the daisies is about having fun with your friends, in perfect weather being blessed by the coolest music and meet some hella awesome people along the way, ya heard!

    Anyway,pretty pretty please man,
    choose me. <3

    Word

    P.S
    (Oh I would totally be looking forward to *Alt-J and *Reason – Love him!)

    kthanksbye

    The Hives!!! Been a fan for years now and couldn’t buy a ticket on time cause I’m a student with not much freedom or money. But the Hives are FREEDOM and I wanted so much to see them this year at Daisies and just totally punk out in the front of the crowd. Come on daddy!

    I need the tickets because I was in Bali (shame poor me) while the tickets sold out! and this is the only festival I’m going to this year…

    Every year Rocking the Daisies gets bigger and better. The first time I went was in 2010 when New Young Pony Club headlined. It was the first time I had heard of the band called New Young Pony Club, and to be frank, it was not where my interest lied but more of the thought of seeing an international act. No, my attraction to Rocking the Daisies that year was drawn by all the amazing local acts the festival was featuring, and surely even though New Young Pony Club did not impress me that much, I was overwhelmed by the whole festival.

    The year after (2011) the festival brought out the news that Band of Skulls are headlining, and this again was the first time I have heard of the band. Not knowing who this “Band of Skulls” band was and feeling that the local acts was not all I wanted to see, I decided that I will rather skip the festival and save the money for something else to come along. So a short while after the festival had past, and I did not attend, I came across the debut album of Band of Skulls, and I felt disappointed in myself, because after listening to it for the first time, Band of Skulls quickly became one of my favorite bands, and I was swept by the emotion of being so bummed that I made the decision to pass on the festival and not being able to see this amazing band live as well as realizing that I would not get the chance very soon again.

    So last year (2012) I made it one of my missions for the year to attend Rocking the Daisies, even if I wasn’t familiar with whoever the headlining act may be that year, I will go. And surely, headlining news came out, and wouldn’t you know, Bloc Party was confirmed to headline Rocking the Daisies that year. Bloc Party! Truly one of my all-time favorite bands, from their very first album, still till today. I was overjoyed with the idea that for the first time, a really big band (in my eyes) are coming to South Africa and headlining the festival that I have been most amped for that year. The festival came and by golly, it has been my favorite one since I started attending music festivals. Everything was perfect, the friends, the music, the party, and one hell of an amazing show given by the four guys who call themselves “Bloc Party,” which left me an emotion of utter amazement, utter beauty and utter love. It all came together to remain one of my favorite weekends of my existence! Rocking the Daisies became my favorite festival that year. One for the books to remember!

    So after experiencing last year’s festival and seeing one of my favorite bands in the world, my brain was tickled by the eager thought of who this year’s headliners would be for the festival, because of course it can only get better! And surely it did, with not only one headlining act for the main stage, but three, as well as an amazing international electronic act. Even if electronic music is not a liking to someone, just being able to see “Boys Noize” performing live, in action, in front of your face, would be an experience to anyone. But out of all the amazing acts to headline this year’s Rocking the Daisies, one stood out for me, one band which as soon as the word that they will be coming to South Africa to headline my favorite festival came out, I stopped everything to exploit my happy emotions to everyone around me, because the Hives are confirmed for Rocking the Daisies! The Hives! The “Barely Legal”, “Tyrannosaurus”, “Black and White”, “Lex Hives”. The group of five guys from Sweden, who’s brought my ears absolute orgasmic pleasure for the last 15 years. I actually could not believe it, out of all the bands I had thought of to come to SA that I would want to see live, The Hives just did not seem to be one that actually would. But they are, and sadly I have realized that my chances to see them, up on the Rocking the Daisies main stage, are not very big at all. Out of all the hype I made for myself and the people around me, the thought of going to buy a ticket completely slipped my mind. You see, this year has brought a lot of change in my life, endings and new beginnings, new responsibilities. I was caught up in the verge of finding a job and after finally getting one, I have become so busy, that time and dates completely stayed out of my realization that it was almost time for daisies. I don’t have a credit card to buy tickets from Webtickets so I had to make time to go to one of the participating outlets to get tickets. The next thing I see is a message at work from a friend asking me if I have bought my tickets, because all tickets are now sold out. SOLD OUT!?? No, it can’t be, it is only… September!! I rushed on the internet to check if this was true, and surely it was, Webtickets and outlets, everything was sold out. Then it all came to me. A feeling of uncertainty as well as a kind of shock at the same time… You know what I mean. I am not going to be able to attend my favorite festival this year. I am not going to be able get probably the only opportunity to see one of the (who I think) best bands in the world. What a letdown, and honestly, I only had myself to blame. My only hope was to search for competitions, and unlucky again, by this time most competitions were already close.

    Luckily there are people like you, Daddy Lifeis Savage, who have the kind heartedness to enable people you do not even know with the opportunity to still have a chance to truly have an amazing experience. Who know that there would be people with late agendas, who will wake up when it is actually too late. So here’s my plea. If the opportunity comes towards me, it is going to be my year’s highlight, and it would be so much appreciated. It can’t be explained through words, but only by the passion and drive I have for what I love, coming from the heart.

    Keep up the cool ideas and opportunities man, even if it’s not meant for me, I appreciate the effort you make for others.

    Regards

    Le Roux H.

    I just came back into the Country and realised that I am going to miss one of the CRAZIEST Fetsivals, with some of my favourite bands lined up. I havent missed a Rock in the daisies Festival since 2011 and want to keep that momentum going FOREVER.

    Unfortunatelly I missed the opportunity to buy my ticket, while I was out of the country.

    Please give me this opportunity to see ALT-J, The Hives and so much more mad bands, sharing the love and enjoy the MOST AMAZING FESTIVAL*

    Alt-J – :) I am burning to go to Rocking The Daisies because I need some inspiration in my life and all of my friends is going. I like festivals like these because I meet some of the most inspiring and interesting people, call it what you want, but the music takes over and gives all different types of people a common energy and vibration to relate to. I clearly remember my inhibitions, ego, and insecurities disappearing and just being happy to connect with others . I have heard amazing things about Rocking The Daisies and would love to go. would love the road trip too!

    All the bands this year are great, especially the international acts like Alt-J and The Hives BUT I would love to see Matthew Mole. His new song “Autumn” is everywhere and would be amazing to see him live. Proudly South African too! Just a young guy from Fish Hoek, I’m need to have a weekend where I can just chill and listen to him strum that guitar.

    I would love these tickets as well because originally I was planning on heading to London over the time of RTD this year and last week thr whole trip fell through. So not only am I no longer going on my overseas adventure but I’m now missing out on RTD because the tickets are sold out! Please please, I don’t like to beg but it would be AMAZING!

    Kayla Niemand says:

    Jade Kelly says:
    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    So I turn 21 the day before RTD. My birthday present to myself was going to be a ticket to this amazing festival. But I decided to take my sweet time when it came to buying a ticket and like they say, you snooze you loose.
    My family moved to Dubai this year so I have no family to celebrate my 21st with, RTD was going to be my saving grace and my huge celebration.
    Also I am a festival lover, mainly of RTD, because I am a rock fan.
    Please, on my hands and knees, I am begging you.
    Winning tickets to this festival Would just make my life. Honestly!

    I cannot wait to see ALT-J and The Hives.
    Locally bring on Goodluck, Gangs of ballet, Dirty skirts and The plastics. Yoh some of my favorite bands for sure!

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Well firstly, great comp! :D Really want to go and just missed buying tickets (yeah I know, my bad!)

    So does Matthew Mole count as local or international at the moment? Guy is doing things massive! Definitely keen as can be to see him live. I’m sure that’s going to be one to remember! Yeah :D

    Then, pretty much everyone on the Red Bull Studio Live Stage! Boyz Noize always kill it live, watched countless youtube vids and listened to tons of their mixes online. Always on top form! And then you got your local legends, from Das Kapital to Stone-age Citizens to Crazy White Boy! I also recently saw Audiophile 021 & Youngsta perform together and that was insane!

    Please man, help me out with some tickets! I support the local scene as much as I can and it’s not every day you see such a massive and unique line-up. Events like these are where guys try push the boundaries and I want to be apart of that! Already got my lifts and everything planned, I NEED to be there. :D

    September 09, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Hey Daddy,

    YOU REALLY SHOULD READ THIS…PLEASE!

    So last year was my first ever RTD with highlight that I can’t even begin to describe…but I think I should for the sake of justifying why I should not only stand the chance to go again, but stand the chance of YOU generously giving me a ticket. It was definitely a weekend of firsts; I saw Jeremy Loops play live for the first time, my best friend and I got to ride around on a tandem bicycle, I ate hotdogs for the entire weekend, I convinced 8 of my friends to get matching dolphin tattoos around their bellybutton with me, we took various photos of us all pulling double chins and literally have THE best album to look through nostalgically. BUT THE REASON I SHOULD WIN THESE TICKETS, is that before all of this amazingness happened, one girl working for one of the sponsors literally drove over and dragged me beneath a golf cart on the Thursday night. Yeah, that actually happened .

    My boyfriend at that time and I were sitting about 3-4 metres next to the stage on the Thursday evening after pitching our tents and having a couple of drinks when this crazy girl just drove over my and didn’t realise. At first I thought two guys fighting had fallen on to me but when I tried to get loose I couldn’t move. Then I realised I was stuck beneath something moving, being dragged. I yelled WHOA and the girl finally stopped. Immediately she wanted to reverse and I just told her to stay still since my foot was caught in the undercarriage of the cart. My boyfriend was freaking out next to me and wanted to pull the cart off my. It was pretty bizarre with everyone having a freak out and being stuck under this thing. Luckily I had the best Sorrel boots on that I bought while working on the ski slopes and managed to pull my foot out of the boot and then get the boot out as well. That is when I turned on this drunk girl. Obviously I was like ARE YOU KIDDING ME, did this just happen to me?! I told her she is crazy for driving like that next to the stage and yeah, I’m pretty tough but what if it had been one of those tiny chick? She would have been seriously hurt. Anyway, we had a bit a bitches-be-crazy argument with her telling me she had been driving there the whole day (like when what 10 people had already arrived?). I wish I could continue to tell the story but typing it out doesn’t do the hilarity of it justice. I just eventually told her to get away from me or I was going to punch her in the face and didn’t want to ruin my epic weekend. I never complained about her really because nothing serious except a couple of bruises on my stomach, chest and arms happened, but I really think as a nice thank-you-for-not-making-a-scene I should receive a little pat on the back or a free ticket?!

    I’ll leave the decision up to you though.

    The Hives and Spoek Mathambo. The reason I need this pass is not actually for myself it’s because my friends are idiots and left buy tickets till it was too late. Now it is up to try win at least one of them a ticket. To turn this challenge up to 11 they do dot believe in competitions and are not entering any. So now I lay down to gauntlet to you to help this first world philanthropist get his bros to Daisies and stick it to there pessimistic asses that don’t believe in the power of risking it for the biscuit. It can become a classic tale of overcoming all adversity (would totally make a great movie)

    I grew up in a pretty strict, conservative family. I wasn’t allowed to listen to most music, but in 1996 my parents let me buy my very first cd, the soundtrack to Mission: Impossible (they figured it would just be the theme music and instrumental score).

    That album changed my life, because the first song that ever truly spoke to me (and by me I mean my impossibly angsty and rebellious 13yo self) was on it: Weak by Skunk Anansie. Hot damn I loved that song, and I still do to this day. I’ve drunkenly sung it at a thousand karaoke nights and screamed it after several rough break-ups.

    I wasn’t around the last time Skunk Anansie came to SA, and I’d pretty much resigned myself to never seeing them live, but now they’re HERE and I’m HERE and holy hot chips this things has just got to happen. Hell, I’ll even upload a YouTube video of my version if you give me these tickets, and you can decide how many drinks I have before I record it :-)

    LOCAL: Matthew Mole – such amazing up and coming talent which really isnt given the credit it deserves! This guy has skills

    INTERNATIONAL: ALT J!!!!! “And she needs youuuuuuuuu this is from Matildaaaaa”. Do i need to say any more :)

    Since tickets are sold out winning this comp would be a dream come true! It’s my birthday weekend & last weekend in Cape Town – and all my mates will be there.

    Peace & love may the best man win :)

    Wow okay!! Too many to mention, I’ll have to draw up a timetable with all the acts that I want to see. But I’m too excited for Alt J, gold fish and phfat:D

    I’ll keep it short because these two great bands need no explaining.

    International: Alt-j
    Brilliant, outstand and have heard that their live performance is even greater.

    Local: Spoek
    Outstanding display of african artistry.

    and why i need those tickets, it Rocking The Daisies. Simply put, its a must one anyones calender if you know whats good for you and i was one of those fools who simply didnt acquire a ticket in time and after the repeated notification that ticket sales were almost done.

    I’m not even gonna try and compete with these 100± comments. Basically, I was broke. Chose duty over pleasure. Then those pesky little tickets got sold out. Boo. Alt-J are everything, because Breezeblocks, I mean. Spoek Mathambo, Matthew Mole, Mr Parow and Gangs of Ballet…would love to see them all in one weekend. Do the right thing. Pick me.

    So friends decides to ccomethrough to visit from jozi and jam out to Alt-J and the Hives. So the only wqy to see them is at RTD… but by the time I managed to secure a weekend off work, all the tickets are sold out and gumtree gangsters want R1200 for a ticket!!

    And I also found out this month that I may be sent to Upington or Bethlehem to work for an entire year, I only just managed to escape Pretoria, now I’m being posted to the country!!!

    Worst of all I’m going to miss the Plastics and Hogs too…

    Please take mercy on my dedicated workaholic soul.

    Trying to compete with all these comments?? Ahh depro vibes!! But I am a party freak and party freaks will die trying!! I’ve entered so many competitions but no luck so far :( Baically I’m a matric student – I work crazy hard – I’m the top learner in grade 12 – saving for my own university tuition so basically R600 for RTD never really was an option but I am DYING to go! ALT J , Goldfish, ENOUGH SAID! And of course PH FAT my absolute favourite. Thanks for giving us crazy party animals who missed out on the glorious opportunity a chance to experience this madness by the way. I’m pretty sure any of these 100 + comments deserve this :)

    hi there,

    I’m sure my story is no different from all the other desperate ticket seekers….
    my son has been looking forward to it the whole year and was due to go with a friend whose mom was buying the tickets for them….needless to say she left it too late and was only able to get 1 ticket for her son….
    it’s my son’s 18th birthday and this is all he wants for his birthday…to go to rocking the daisies…
    all his friends are going and if could give him a ticket I would be the coooleest mom in Cape Town and it would the best 18th birthday present ever!!!
    please help a desperate mom make her son’s year!!!

    Yes Yes I know everyone is excited to see alt-J!! :) Well so am I……I just cannot get enough of their sweet sound and I couldn’t think of a better band to kick start a maaaaaaaad and wild Saturday night! ……and I mean PHFAT* just gets my blood boiling! they graced us with their presence recently in Grahamstown (Rhodes University) and I possibly had the best night of my life. so once again I would love to “get down like animals” to them again! :D (I am grinning from ear to ear just thinking about it).

    Me and my best friend are desperate! We both have never been to RTD but all of our friends are going and this year would be an absolute treat to spend with them before we all disperse around the world again!! Alt-J, Christian Tiger School, Ph fat and pretty much anyone and everyone – music touches us each so uniquely and I want to experience as much of the music possible and meet some awesome people at this mass movement of good vibes and love!! Please send us to Rocking the Daisies 2013!!!!!!
