The weather reports have spoken and this weekend is going to be a wet one in the land of rocks… which means the Rocklands Rally has been postponed until 5–7 August 💔

Please note that all event tickets, camping at De Pakhuys and event shirts purchased on MMO will roll over to the new event dates – any other alternative accommodation arrangements for the weekend will need to be dealt with independently.

If you can’t make the new event dates and/or you would like a refund for any of your Rocklands Rally purchases, email info@mountainmailorder.co.za ✉️
