Backsberg enters new decade with superb 2020 band line up for annual picnic concert series!
Backsberg Estate Cellars’ picnic concert series returns once again by popular demand, running weekly on Sundays from 16 February to 15 March 2020.
Since inception in 2008, the outdoor events have grown in popularity and become a staple on the region’s outdoor entertainment calendar. This year, as always, ten outstanding main and supporting bands will take to the stage over a five-week period, presenting music genres to suit all tastes, from folk to blues, rock, Afro and pop.
The A-lister line up this year includes
- Bottomless Coffee on 16 February (opening act Dani Villé)
- Blues Broers on 23 February (opening act BrotherBrother)
- Arno Carstens on 1 March (opening act Crosscurrent)
- Albert Frost on 8 March (opening act Alanna Joy)
- Easy Freak on 15 March (opening act Bam Bam Brown).
Backsberg was established more than 100 years ago and is one of the Western Cape’s most beautiful estates with a glorious outdoor setting. Think lush lawns in the shade of ancient oak trees with the majestic Simonsberg Mountains as a backdrop, and you have a recipe for a long, lazy summer afternoon best spent picnicking to live music in the Paarl Valley. Families with children are well catered for during the concerts as well, with a supervised play area, a jumping castle and face painting facilities.
Doors open at 3 pm, bands start playing at 4 pm and the final set ends at 7 pm. Backsberg wine (no BYO), refreshments and snacks will be on sale on the day and picnic boxes can be pre-ordered online.
Tickets cost R150 online via Quicket or R170 at the gate and R60 for students with a valid ID card and children under 12 enter free of charge. Book Tickets Here
