Jeremy Loops, South African singer, songwriter and record producer, will be sharing the stage with the seven-piece Cape Town-based band, Crimson House, for a New Year’s Eve performance.

Alongside these performances, you can also look forward to Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell with their European chart-topping hits such as Daddy Cool, Ma Baker, Belfast, Rivers of Babylon, Brown Girl in the Ring, Rasputin and Mary’s Boy Child.

CHRISTMAS AT KIRSTENBOSCH HITS ON 23 DECEMBER
Sarah Struys, Events Manager of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, says that Kirstenbosch is thrilled to be having Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell perform for the Cape Town public. “Yes, the real Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell are coming to Kirstenbosch! Boney M. and the former lead singer of the group, Liz Mitchell, were not only the disco cult band of the 70s but remain a living legend of the entire disco era. We are looking forward to singing along to many Boney M. Christmas hits on 23 December!

FIRST TIME DEBUTS AT KIRSTENBOSCH
This year, the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts 2018/2019 will also open up its stage to many artists who will be performing at Kirstenbosch for the first time. Tresor, winner for the Best Pop Album in 2016 and 2018, will open this year’s concerts series with his Afropolitan sound.
