Rise and Shine Ec-Friendly Acoustic Festival in Jozi



9th March 2013 sees Rain Productions, Pangolin Productions & MixFM 93.8 in association with Obikwa and Greenpop, host Johannesburg's premier Eco-Friendly Acoustic Music Festival: “Rise & Shine”


The festival will provide an opportunity for music-lovers to experience the garden oasis that is Sandton Central Park, while enjoying some of South Africa's brightest musical talents in their acoustic formats.

In addition, Rise & Shine, in association with Greenpop, will plant a tree for every 50 people that attend the festival, compensating for the festival’s carbon emissions. Collectively, festival-goers will all be contributing to a small forest taking root.

Tickets are available at www.ticketbreak.co.za at R150 per person, with the option of paying an additional R100 for a 'Green ticket', whereby Greenpop will plant a tree on your behalf somewhere in Africa.

A certificate with the co-ordinates of your sponsored tree will be sent to you once its toes are in the soil.


The line-up includes Shadowclub, Tidal Waves, Naming James, Nakhane Toure, Yo Grapes, Chiba Fly, Phoenix Smith, Some Grow Young, Shotgun Tori, and Jeremy Loops - a founding member of Greenpop.


In addition to the world-class music on offer, festival-goers are encouraged to arrive at the park as early as 8.00am for a Yoga session included in the ticket price.


With the Gautrain within walking distance from Sandton Central Park, guests from as far as Pretoria, Centurion, Midrand, Benoni & Rosebank are encouraged to join in the festivities. The festival concludes at 6.00pm and the Gautrain runs every 30 minutes until 8.30pm on the day.


Festival-goers driving to the event are encouraged to car-pool and to park their vehicles at Sandton City from where it is a gentle 500m stroll to the park. Saturday parking is a flat-rate fee of R10 for the day.


This outdoor production aims to showcase – through entertainment, enjoyment & experience – what can be achieved through a collective awareness.


“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the next best time is now”

~Chinese proverb
