Shortstraw ‘Strawditions’ Are Back as Band Heads to Kirstenbosch!


After a much-needed break and year-long hiatus in 2018, SHORTSTRAW are excited to return in 2019 for a select number of shows!

With a #1 album to their name, nominations for both a South African Music Award as well as an MTV Africa Music Award, a string of top 5 singles on national radio charts and other local music award wins, SHORTSTRAW have established themselves as one of the biggest bands in South Africa. With their catchy melodies and infectious rhythms, the band has taken pleasure in rocking the most prominent live music festivals, venues and clubs in the South Africa and abroad, including successful tours to Europe, Australia and Japan. SHORTSTRAW have earned themselves a loyal following along the way.

Now SHORTSTRAW is heading to Kirstenbosch again in March, and what’s more, is that their popular STRAWDITIONS are back!

You can share the stage with SHORTSTRAW and sing a song with them on 24 March at Kirstenbosch Gardens! All you need to do is post a little audition on social media so the band can hear those pipes!

Post a video from your Facebook or Instagram page singing one of their songs! Lekker easy. Don’t forget to add #strawdition and #shortstrawkirstenbosch2018 and also tag @shortstrawband just to be safe!

Submissions end at midnight 17 March. (Participants must be able to get to the show.)
