Woohoo! Some of the acts for the highly anticipated Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts 2017/2018 have been announced – Cat Stevens, Goldfish and The Vamps are just some of the stellar artists on the exciting bill.
Concerts, sadly, only kick off in November, so there are still a few months to go, but you can start booking tickets now to avoid disappointment.
As usual, the magnificent gardens provide the backdrop for these open-air gigs – the perfect place to spend lazy afternoons. It’s also a fantastic picnic location, so bring along a blanket and a hamper of goodies.
Cat’s out of the bag
Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens is gracing our shores with a tour to South Africa for the very first time. Among other venues around the country, he’s bringing his Peace Train Tour to Kirstenbosch, which marks 50 years since his debut album Matthew & Son was released in 1967. Sadly, tickets to the concert on 11 November 2017 sold out within two hours of going on sale, but organisers have added another date due to popular demand.
