The Cape Town Festival celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year

Billed as a diverse arts, culture and heritage event that caters for all cultural groups and ages, Mother City residents and visitors alike can look forward to a Main Festival line-up that includes jazz greats Jonathan Rubain, featuring Robbie Jansen; Alvin Dyers, featuring Leslie Kleinsmith; as well as other homegrown favourites such as Prime Circle, Coda, The Rudimentals, The Rockets, and Alistair Izobel. Yet more jazz indulgences are to be had with the presence of rising star, 23-year-old Khayelitsha resident Nomfusi Gotyana (the only newcomer invited to perform at a recent Miriam Makeba tribute concert), as well as Mono Dullisear, Celeste Williams, Moreira Project, and Raylene.
