Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts

Place: Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens  (19 Nov 2018 - 01 Apr 2019 )

Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts

Enjoy sunny afternoons on the slopes of Table Mountain, with the best music South Africa has to offer.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is world famous for the breathtaking views, and diverse Cape flora it displays. Nestled against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, it is home to a variety of birds – including the brilliant green and red sugarbirds, owls, franklins and guinea fowl.

On Sunday afternoons, from the end of November until the beginning of April, the historic Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens are transformed into a magnificent outdoor concert venue.

Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts is part of a series of outdoor live music concerts, featuring some of the hottest South African acts in the industry. From jazz, R&B, hip-hop, folk, rock to big band swing the concerts appeal to all ages and tastes. 

These Cape Town outdoor concerts are held on the garden's magnificent lawns, where the soft grass banks slope gently down towards the stage, backed by the natural amphitheatre of Table Mountain's eastern face.

Concertgoers, armed with picnic baskets and bottles of wine, should arrive early to enjoy the late afternoon warmth before the music begins and the sun slowly slips behind the mountain.

Feel Good Factor: The concerts act as fundraisers for the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. All money raised is used to maintain and improve the facilities.

Tickets for each event can be purchased from the venue, telephonically or online via Webtickets.

The concert venue opens at 16:00 and shuts at 20:00

Tickets for each event can be purchased from the venue or online via Webtickets.

Proof of age must be produced for each youth (6-21) ticket redeemed at Kirstenbosch. Children under 6yrs are free.


For your convenience, a Kids’ Zone, situated at the top of the concert lawn, will provide supervised activities for your children during the concerts. Bear in mind this is not a child-minding service.
