Rocking for Rhinos 2014

The Rocking for Rhinos Festival comes back for it's third year in Hoedspruit, on the weekend 26-28 September 2014.

Local, national and international artists have joined this cause to save the Rhino. Each ticket purchased gets donated towards conservation and anti-poaching initiatives to help address the ever-worsening poaching crisis.

This year's lineup includes aKing, Chris Chameleon, Octanium, Flatlander, Wysdiman, The Kifness and Sarcotrofia. There will also be beer tents, food stalls, merchandise vendors, activities, camping facilities and a fantastic fun in the sun vibe.

The 2014 festival is once again being held at Franklyn Park, one of the most beautiful recreational parks in South Africa. Franklyn Park is situated on the outskirts of Hoedspruit and borders the Kruger National Park. Both Hoedspruity and the Kruger National Park, have been hit heavily by poaching.

Once roaming throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, rhinos are now limited to reserves in Africa and Asia. Since the 1970’s over 90% of the rhinos in the world have been killed for their horns. In 2011, rhinos had a negative birth rate for the first time ever, with 448 known cases of rhino poaching in South Africa. Africa’s Western black rhino was recently declared officially extinct and there is worldwide concern that other species of Rhino are headed the same way.

The aim of the festival is to contribute as much as possible to the slowing down of the species' extinction. It aims to do this by raising funds to help anti-poaching units like Protrack and Quemic protect our rhinos and help bring poachers to justice.

The Festival opens at 6:30pm on Friday the 26th. It will open at 11:30am on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th of September.
