Rocking the Daisies are excited to play host to Brit 2014 Award winner Rudimental, and the wonk-funk, alternative dance band Crystal Fighters. Both acts are fresh out of London’s underground music scene and are the first set of international artists confirmed to rock South Africa’s favourite music and lifestyle festival this year!


A pioneering melting-pot collective who have taken the British music scene by storm. You’ve probably heard them – from their huge drum n bass-meets-soul anthem style, gracing the stages of Glastonbury 2013 and Coachella 2014 and No. 1 hit single ‘Feel The Love’, Rudimental achieved global recognition at lightning speed when The XX blogged their airy soulful house offering ‘Spoons’ in February.

As the members of Rudimental say, “What unites us all really is our love of soulfulness on the dance floor. We want people to dance and to feel something”. This band of writers, musicians and DJs are an example of possessing that rare thing: a collective of innovators seamlessly coming together and striking gold.

Crystal Fighters

Crystal Fighters are progressive dance music joined by the melodies of traditional Basque folk, with beats fuelled by early 1980s Spanish punk and experimental electronica. Here you have a band hell-bent on locating their own musical heaven, a place beyond petty genre parameters, where all that remains is song, rhythm and sentiment.

If Crystal Fighters have surrendered to the power of the song, they haven’t raised the white flag in terms of energy! Permeating themes of love, death, insanity and hope, this band is creating a culture of its own.
