Summer Sunset Concerts To Feed The Soul

October 4, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Enjoying lazy summer Sunday afternoons listening to the best in local and international music has become a tradition at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden situated in Cape Town, South Africa.

The concerts are a firm favourite with locals and tourists alike. It’s an opportunity to visit a botanical garden that highlights the Western Capes’ rich floral heritage and at the same time enjoy world-class entertainment in a spectacularly beautiful environment.

541434 Now in its 22nd year, the 2013/2014 season of Old Mutual Summer Sunset Concerts boasts one of the best line-ups ever.

This year’s season kicks off on Sunday 24 November 2013 and runs through to 6 April 2014 and features something for everyone. With a line-up that promises the hottest artists on the coolest stage in Cape Town, prepare to spend every Sunday winding down at this iconic garden, which is in its Centenary year.

Says Frank Brooks, Sponsorship Manager for sponsor Old Mutual: “This season marks the 6th year of a successful partnership between Old Mutual and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. These concerts provide an opportunity for established as well as up and coming artists to entertain the audience in one of the most beautiful venues in the world.  The Old Mutual Music in the Gardens series extends to Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban and the Kirstenbosch series forms the back bone of the Old Mutual commitment to providing artists with the platform to do great things.”

This season we welcome back the Parlotones, Prime Circle, Freshlyground, Lira, Civil Twilight, Mia Casa and many more, with Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi being new to the schedule.

Then head down to Kirstenbosch for some of the best music on offer in South Africa. Pack a picnic, meet up with friends and family and head off for the concert everyone is going to be talking about on Monday.

The Old Mutual Summer Sunset Concerts take place at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden (Rhodes Avenue, Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa) on Sundays from 17:30 until 19:00. Gates open at 16:00.
