Kirstenbosch Goes Big for 2017/2018 Concert Series

Latest update: 6 December 2017

Grab your picnic baskets, slather on that sunscreen and throw on those forgotten sandals; it’s Kirstenbosch summer concert season, and everyone is welcome. Billed to take over Cape Town’s historic botanical gardens every Sunday from 11 November 2017 to 1 April 2018 (although all of the dates for 2018 have not been released yet), 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 lekker local acts such as Matthew Mole, Hot Water, Goldfish, Freshlyground, Mi Casa, Jeremy Loops and more! There are even some international acts billed to appear at the gardens this year including Texas, Yusuf (Cat) Stevens, The Vamps, Ismaël Lô and The Christians.


Plus, some concerts will  feature a kid’s zone, so moms and pops can chill out and soak in the music while the kiddies 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. So, concert-goers are encouraged to bring along blankets and picnic baskets filled with eats and drinks, including alcohol.
