Forget Rocking the Daisies in Darling…. This summer, Old Mutual will be rocking the fynbos at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden with its Summer Sunset Concerts, right here in Cape Town.

This popular series of concerts returns to the garden every Sunday evening from November 25, 2012 to April 7, 2013 and will feature a line-up of fantastic international and local acts. From jazz, R&B, hip hop, folk, rock to big band swing, the concerts appeal to all ages and musical tastes.

Expect to see the likes of UK-based international pop star Daniel Bedingfield, iconic jazz star Hugh Masekela, local rock stars Arno Carstens and The Parlotones, Freshlyground and singer Johnny Clegg, amongst others.

Make a day of it by gathering your mates and loved ones, packing a delicious picnic and sprawling out on the grass to enjoy the sweet sounds.

This summer’s series of sunset concerts coincides with a celebration of 21 years of concerts and the centenary year of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, which forms part of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The Garden is home to more than 22 000 species of indigenous plants, of which the fynbos is possibly the most well-known.
