I’m pleased to confirm that Sandton’s favourite eco-friendly music festival returns to Sandton Central Park on Saturday 28 March to ensure that us Joburgers have yet another awesome addition to the Summer event calendar. Gates open bright and early at 8am. The event’s Yogi, Karen, (yup they even have a Yogi) will host a light Yoga session on the lawn at 9am, before a full day of music, food, nature and friends.
Delicious cuisine will be provided by a number of high-end food stalls curated from the top food & design markets and their fully stocked bar will keep festival-goers hydrated and refreshed throughout the day (whether they decide to take the alcoholic route or not).
Sandton Central Park is on the corner of Grayston & Sandton Drives, with the entrance to the Park on 5th Street. It is a short 2km tuk-tuk ride from Sandton’s Gautrain Station – a great eco-friendly way to arrive. Parking is available at Nelson Mandela Square and Sandton City for a flat fee of R10.
Rise & Shine Festival, in association with Obikwa Wines & Johannesburg City Parks, plant 1 tree for every 50 people who attend. The event has raised 260 trees since its inception, resulting in a Green Footprint.
