As a music and lifestyle festival, Rocking the Daisies sets itself apart through its ability to year-on-year offer curated line-ups that cater for the broad audience that the festival attracts. The blend of international and local talent provides a focal point for the event. Every year, 25 000 festival fans make their way to the Western Cape to attend.
Twenty-five-year-old Grammy-winning Australian producer Flume (Harley Streten) is set to headline Rocking the Daisies, bringing his visual set and experimental bass sound to the South African stage.

Skin includes the two-time Platinum-certified song, Never Be Like You, featuring Kai and the Platinum-certified single, Say It, featuring Tove Lo.
