Our journey to the 2011 Rocking the Daisies festival began with a two hour flight from uShaka International into Cape Town with a further one hour drive to Carling and as you can see we were kept entertained with never a dull moment aboard the trip. Truth be told Chia won that round with an MMS pic of said gesture sent to Shaun’s mobile…

The accommodation for the weekend was hosted by Kreef Hotel

Temperatures soared to an average of 38 – 40 degrees over the weekend but that didn’t hinder the crowds love of the dam and non-stop party while enjoying the Red Bull Studios djs on the decks
