"...at its best the city offers a relaxed blend of African ethnicity and culture - and nowhere does that harmony look, or sound, better than at the summer concerts at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden". - Time Magazine, 19 November 2007

Concerts start on 20 November 2011
The 20th concert series kicks off on 20 November 2011 and runs until 1 April 2011, so get ready for a line up that reflects not only the long running success of this series, but the hottest acts in the industry.  With a healthy mix of old and new the concerts attract capacity crowds from every age group and the music genres represent the best sounds on circuit.

Exciting line-up of local talent
Appearing at Kirstenbosch has become a major coup for young and exciting new acts so we welcome some new names into this hall of fame and hear their young, upbeat notes  as they make their garden debut.  Old favourites The Parlotones, Johnny Clegg, Prime Circle , Freshlyground, Goldfish and more thrill their audiences with their popular sounds.
