sowing the seeds

With winter almost rearing its head, the opportunity for a fun-filled weekend of camping and top quality music in a beautiful setting is drawing to a close for a few months. Luckily, Sowing the Seeds will be taking place on the 24th and 25th of May at a new venue in the Mpumalanga Highveld. The five-star Welgelegen Manor Estate, possibly one of the most beautiful settings in South Africa, will host this year’s Sowing the Seeds.

Also known as the teaser for the annual Rocking The Daisies event, Sowing the Seeds promises to blow your minds as we give festival-goers from Mpumalanga, Gauteng and surrounding provinces a chance to experience the ‘green’ activities and festivities that take place on a more intimate scale. Taking place on the outskirts of the beautiful Mpumalanga province, the spectacular new venue, with roots in the Rocking The Daisies venue – Cloof Wine Estate, will boast two stages hosting the top music acts, delicious food and engaging activation’s as well as many outstanding ‘green’ initiatives.

Music acts will be announced soon but if the past few years are anything to go by, we suggest getting your tickets now to avoid any disappointment!
