Kirstenbosch summer concerts for the festive season and beyond | iinfo TZANEEN

Kirstenbosch is an important botanical garden nestled at the eastern foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town. You will find it in Rhodes Drive, Newlands. It is a 5.28 km² area of floral beauty, peace and tranquillity. It was created in 1913 and in 2004 the Cape Floristic Region, which includes Kirstenbosch, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For any enquiries or reservations, call 021 799 8783.
 
The Kirstenbosch gardens liven up with the sound of music every Sunday from November 2017 to April 2018 for the annual summer sunset concerts. Hordes of music lovers pack picnic baskets and blankets for the chilled-out live music sessions on the historic botanical garden's sprawling greens. This season the exciting bill includes some seriously big names and local lekker acts. Some of these artists are The Vamps, Freshly Ground, Jimmy Nevis, Grassy Spark, Jeremy Loops, Mi Casa and more. Additionally, some concerts will have childcare facilities, so moms and dads can have a good time and rest assured that their kiddies are in good hands.
