Woohoo! The lineup for the highly anticipated Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts 2017/2018 has been announced – with Cat Stevens, Ismaël Lo, Goldfish and The Vamps just some of the stellar artists on the exciting bill.
Concerts, sadly, only kick off in November, so there is still a month 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.
Also on the bill is Senagalese singing sensation, Ismaël Lo, who is returning to our shores for the first time in almost a decade. Audiences are in for a multi-layered treat on 19 November, as he and his 12-piece band bring the best of Dakar’s famous mbalax sounds to the garden. Tickets are available at Webtickets.
The full Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert lineup will be revealed on 2 October, the same day that all the tickets go on sale at Webtickets. Please note: Tickets for all Kirstenbosch concerts are available from Webtickets. Sarah Struys, events manager at Kirstenbosch has stated: “Only tickets purchased at Webtickets.co.za are legitimate tickets. Please do not purchase tickets from any other websites, as it may be a scam, and there is no guarantee of the validity of tickets bought from any other source.”
