It is said that plants love music, so those around the performance stage in Kirstenbosch are very happy right through the summer during the Old Mutual Kirstenbosch Summer Concert series every Sunday afternoon. There is blues, jazz, divine divas, African drumming, bagpipes, big band sounds, string quartets, and even the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. Plus South Africa’s top Afrocentric bands, including Lira, Johnny and Jesse Clegg, Prime Circle, The Parlotones and Goldfish.
Pack a picnic and a blanket and settle on the grassy slopes for a perfect view of the stage with its mountain backdrop. The big names draw huge crowds so get there early!
Book online www.webtickets.co.za and redeem the e-ticket at Kirstenbosch Ticket Office, alternatively tickets are available at Kirstenbosch a week prior to each concert.
