Can you believe that summer is just a few months away? This means warm days spent outdoors, and of course – the Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts series.

Although the official schedule for the 2017/18 Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts season is yet to be released, we have word on four upcoming concerts set to rock you in one of the most beautiful settings in Cape Town.

Yusuf Cat Stevens is first up, with two concerts primed for the Gardens; the first already sold out and tickets still available for his show on Sunday, November 12th, 2017.

The annual New Year’s Eve concert at Kirstenbosch will see crowd-favourites Goldfish and Hot Water dazzle concert-goers into the new year, while we can be certain that other regular featured acts will include The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, Dan Patlansky, Jimmy Nevis, Beatenberg, Al Bairre, Jeremy Loops, Matthew Mole, Mango Groove and Jesse Clegg.
