The new season of Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts kicked off yesterday with recently returned local band, Just Jinger. Judging from the traffic jam that followed, the drizzly weather proved no deterrent, and no doubt the season will be jam-packed as usual.
It’s one of the best ways to spend a Sunday afternoon in Cape Town – lolling about on the beautifully kept lawns of Kirstenbosch Gardens, snacking on picnic fare and enjoying some of South Africa’s best local music talent.
The event’s popularity does make it a bit crowded at times, but if you make sure to book your tickets in advance, and get there early, you’re bound to have a great time.
