Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts 2018/19 is Almost Here! Warmer days are upon us, which means more time for all those outdoorsy stuff, like soaking up the sun, getting your dose of nature and enjoying the fresh air! If live music, great snacks and a relaxed picnic setting with the squad is your kind of thing, then Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is the place to be this summer (hello Sunday Funday!)
What Can You Expect?
The lineup for Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert 2018/19 will take place every Sunday from 18 November 2018 to 31 March 2019. By the looks of it, there will be a super cool mix of old and new faces, across various genres, from rock to jazz to electro and more, which means you and the crew will have plenty of options when it comes to live music greatness.
The Concerts & Artists:
From now until the end of the year, you can expect to enjoy performances by: Tresor and Majozi (18 November), Mango Groove (25 November), Lady Zamar and Black Motion (2 December), Mi Casa (9 December) and Lira (30 December).
Set to be one of the headlining acts is 70s and 80s disco band Boney M featuring former lead singer Liz Mitchell (23 December). And if you’re feeling the picnic and music scene for New Year’s Eve, then head to Kirstenbosch, as singer, songwriter and record producer Jeremy Loops will be heating up the stage alongside 7-piece Cape Town based band Crimson House (31 December).
When the Monday of months hits (January) and you’re back at work, a lazy Sunday afternoon in the gardens of Kirstenbosch will be the perfect way to end off the weekend. You can look forward to performances by old favourites Goldfish (6 January), The Parlotones (13 January), Freshlyground (20 January) and Mafikizolo (27 January).
In February and March, Kirstenbosch will play host to The Soil (3 February), Fokofpolisiekar (10 February), Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival (17 February), The Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (24 February), Amanda Black and Sun El Musician (3 March), Matthew Mole (10 March), Spoegwolf and Jan Blohm (17 March), Shortstraw and Bam Bam Brown (24 March), and last but not least, Goodluck and Easy Freak (31 March).
Visitors are allowed to bring drinks and snacks, so be sure to pack a blanket and picnic basket. Ticket prices start from R150 and we reckon you buy yours early from Webtickets to avoid disappointment.
Start time for each show is about 17h30, but you’d do well to get there early so that you can grab your perfect spot on the lawn. And while we all know how unpredictable Cape Town weather can be, all concerts will take place come rain or shine. Get ready for the much anticipated picnic concert series of the summer!
