2013 Cape Town International Jazz Festival road closures
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
If you’re enjoying a guitar being strummed, the soulful sounds of top international musicians and the sultry notes of a saxophone, you know for sure the Cape Town International Jazz Festival has once again descended on Cape Town, the musical Mother City.
Always one of the most highly anticipated events on Cape Town’s social calendar, this year’s festival – to be held from Friday 5 to Saturday 6 April, 2013 – boasts an exquisite line-up of jazz maestros, including Jill Scott, Gregory Porter, Mi Casa, the Reza Kota Quartet, Zonke Dikana, Ronin and more.
Whether you’re rocking out to local pop sensation Jimmy Nevis and other headliners at the free community concert at the trendy Greenmarket Square on Wednesday 3 April, 2013 or getting down to all of the musical greats at the two-day festival at the impressive Cape Town International Convention Centre, the 2013 jazz festival is a must-do!
Before you head out to Africa’s grandest gathering, remember to take the following road closures and parking information into consideration:
