It’s time for the new season of Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts, so get your picnic baskets and blankets ready! The annual concert series is a highlight on Cape Town’s musical calendar and attracts thousands of fans every year. My picks for this season include Just Jinjer, The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, Beatenberg, Mi Casa and Jeremy Loops. Regulars like Prime Circle, The Parlotones, Goldfish and Freshlyground are sure to be big hits as well.
