Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts

Prepare yourself for a scintillating smorgasbord of Sunday sunset live music performances in the Cape’s century-old botanical gardens

Grab your picnic baskets, slather on that sunscreen and throw on those forgotten sandals; it’s time for the 2016-2017 Kirstenbosch summer concert season, and everyone is welcome. Billed to take over Cape Town’s historic and stunning botanical gardens every Sunday from 20 November 2016 to 2 April 2017, the ever-popular outdoor live music series returns with a vast and varied line-up that’s likely to appeal to all music lovers.

This year, the exciting bill includes some seriously big names and local lekker acts such as Beatenberg, Jimmy Nevis, Just Jinjer, Jeremy Loops, Shortstraw, Al Bairre, Zonke Dikana and more!

Plus, certain concerts feature a kid’s zone, so moms and pops can chill out and drink in the music while kiddies can let loose and have fun running around in a designated area.

And if you don’t already know, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden has a wide array of open spaces that make it the perfect picnic ground. Thus, concert-goers are encouraged to bring along blankets and picnic baskets filled with eats and drinks, including alcohol.
