Following the sold-out success of the 2018 shows, Texx and the City and the Aquarium are once again joining forces to showcase some of South Africa’s finest musical acts. Over four nights, from May to August, the Aquarium will host eight stellar bands: Shadowclub, Manu Grace, Dangerfields, Twin Weaver, Manny Walters, Luh’ra, The Steezies and Androgenius, who will be honouring the Mother City’s love for live music.

Performing stripped-down acoustics sets, all eight bands will make the most of the unusual setting. The viewing area in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit will be transformed into a cosy, living room-style setting where you’ll be able to enjoy two bands on each evening.

Holding 1.6-million litres of sea water, the I&J Ocean Exhibit provides a massive home to stingrays, musselcracker, sea turtles and many more marine creatures. There really is no better or more beautiful backdrop for any event.

This year, After Dark ticket holders will enjoy access to a special Two Oceans Aquarium membership offer. Every After Dark ticket will entitle the holder to a year’s unlimited access to the Aquarium for just R245 (usual price R430; Ts&Cs apply).

Drifter Brewing Company will also return this year to give concert-goers a complimentary taste of their special nautical-themed brews. Symbolising adventure, creativity and community, we can’t think of a better brand than Drifter to complement the boatloads of passion that makes After Dark possible. 

Doors open at 19h00 and tickets are for sale at R295 from Quicket.
