Maxing out and enjoying some of the summer sunshine, while listening to the country’s best live acts, has become par for the course with the Old Mutual Summer Sunset Concerts at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. It’s a great 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.
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.
Frank Brooks, Sponsorship Manager for sponsor Old Mutual had this to say ahead of season:
“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.”
The Kirstenbosch stage is a favourite with many of the popular bands that are invited back to play in the Old Mutual Summer Sunset Concerts. This year you’ll have the chance to see all of your favourites like, Prime Circle, Freshlyground, Lira, Civil Twilight, Mia Casa and many more. It all kicks off with South African rock royalty Prime Circle on Sunday 24 November and from there it’s pretty much back to back awesomeness throughout Summer.
