Following the great Music, Nature & Food that was on offer for the residents of Jozi at the Autumn & Winter productions this year, Rise & Shine Acoustic Music Festival returns to Sandton Central Park for its Spring Edition in partnership with Johannesburg City Parks.
Saturday 28 September will feature a lineup including some of South Africa’s best acoustic musical talents along with & like minded eco-friendly warriors at Sandton’s garden oasis. The line-up includes Dan Patlansky, David van Vuuren, Rambling Bones, Tidal Waves, Shotgun Tori, Joshua Grierson, Mosoeu Ketlele Trio, Frankie Beagle and Some Grow Young.
Rise & Shine will plant 1 tree for every 50 people who attend the festival, which means all you have to do is go – in order to save the planet. Festival-goers will also have the option of paying an additional R100 to ‘Green’ their ticket & a tree will be planted on their behalf & the co-ordinates sent to them (nice touch).
Rise & Shine opens its doors at 8am, in time for organic muffins, Ethiopean coffee, coconuts & freshly-squeezed orange juice before the 9am Yoga session commences. A relaxed stretch on the lawn for beginners & experienced yogis alike. Sandton Central Park is within walking (or tuk-tuk) distance from the Gautrain & Sandton City. Parking at Sandton City is R10 for the day. The Gautrain runs from 5.30am until 8.30pm.
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now”~Chinese proverb
