Summer is fast approaching and with the weather warming up as the weeks progress, the excitement for the Mother City’s outdoor summer time entertainment has been increasing even faster.

The Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts are one of those events that summer-lovers flock to the botanical gardens for every year, and 2017 won’t be any different with the lineup that’s just been released.

Hot, lazy summer afternoons will be entertained by the likes of South African favourites Matthew Mole and Jeremy Loops, as well as Mi Casa, Goodluck, The Kiffness and more!

What’s even more exciting about this years sunset groove is that Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens will be touring South Africa for the very first time and will be bringing his Peace Train Tour to Kirstenbosch – marking 50 years since his debut album Matthew & Son, which was released in 1967. You can win tickets to his show with CapeTownEtc here.
