Every summer the tranquil gardens on the slopes of Table Mountain resonate with spectacular music, as South Africa’s top musical acts play their greatest hits as the sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean.
The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts are a spectacular highlight of the South African festive season, and this year is set to have one of the hottest line-ups yet! With SA super-group the Parletones performing their unique brand of alternative rock on 4 December; Prime Circle playing their headbanging tunes on the Day of Goodwill; and the smooth, sultry sounds of Lira on 29 January; as well as the quirky sounds of Al Bairre and Shortstraw playing the 2016/17 seasons final gig on 2 April.
Fans of classic South African music acts are sure to rock their way into the new year with Johnny Clegg and Slow Jack on New Year’s Eve, or you can start the year off on the right note by watching Mango Groove serenade 2017’s first sunset. These are shows that you don’t want to miss.
