After the first RETROFEST went down as a complete success, acousticsNOW is following on from this with RETROFEST#2 in association with MINI. It once again features an awesome selection South Africa’s finest contemporary acoustic musicians performing songs exclusively from the 1960s & 1970s eras.
Expect some of the hits from legends like Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Rodriguez, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, The Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas & The Papas, Johnny Cash, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Donovan, Otis Redding & more – all brought to life by local talents:
NIROX Sculpture Park is nestled in the Cradle Of Humankind – a World Heritage Site – with its luscious amphitheatre set to be the stage for RETROFEST#2. The natural surroundings and manicured landscape will create the perfect platform for people to experience some of the greatest songs ever written. Cuisine on offer will once again be courtesy of The Epicurian Emporium – a collective of high-end food stalls from the burgeoning food & design market, with emphasis on healthy, naturally-sourced options, as well as eco-friendly foodwares.
Gates open at 10h00, live music starts at 11h00 and the festival will conclude in the early evening.
Festival-goers will be treated to a full day of Music, Food, Art & Nature.
