Super duo Goldfish take the stage at Kirstenbosch on Sunday April 12 at an additional concert in the Old Mutual Summer Sunset series. The concert has been specially organized by Old Mutual and Kirstenbosch as a fundraiser to send the annual Kirstenbosch-South Africa Chelsea Flower Show exhibit.
With the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) having no official sponsor for the Chelsea Flower Show exhibit, this additional concert will raise badly needed funds to send a South African exhibit to what is known as the floral “Olympics” – the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show from 19 to 23 May. Proceeds will go to this 33 year old tradition of showcasing South Africa’s plant diversity on this global platform.
Highly popular Goldfish is Dominic Peters and David Poole. Hailing from the Mother City, these unassuming surfer/jazz musician and electronic maniacs are one of the most exciting live electronica acts in the world. Their rise to fame has been nothing short of meteoric and with their combination of live instruments and vocals with samplers, effects, synthesisers plus a healthy dollop of freeform improvisation, Goldfish has hit a nerve on dance floors across the world. They are hailed as the re-invention of the DJ, and were voted best live act in South Africa.
Concert time: 17h30 – Gates open 15h30.
Ticket price: R85 for adults (R95 for online bookings), R65 for Botanical Society members (R70 for online bookings), R55 for scholars (R60 for online bookings).
Tickets will be on sale soon from www.tunegum.com or from Kirstenbosch from the Tuesday before the concert.
