Park Acoustics celebrated their 6th birthday in May, but that doesn’t mean that there will be a lack of musical talent for this month’s edition.
The next edition will be taking place on the 26th of June 2016 and will feature performances by Bad Peter (who are making their Park Acoustics debut), Edisontide (a Durban based Indie act formerly known as Yorke), Early Hours (an Indie / Britpop / Afrorock band from Cape Town), Hot Water (who will also be performing at their first Park Acoustics), South African Indie gods Shortstraw and Veranda Panda. There will also be stand-up comedy from Schalk Bezuidenhout, KG and Kraai Du Toit.
In case you did not know, Jordi Van Dyk (Edisontide’s lead vocalist) was the winner of the Converse Get Out Of The Garage contest in 2013, Early Hours was the first South African band in history to reach over 1 Million plays on Soundcloud and Hot Water’s song Wamkelekile was included on the soundtrack of Blended (a film which starred Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler).
Have a listen to the Hot Water track below:
I missed Bad Peter at STRAB this year and I really want to see what the fuss is about. It will also be great to see Shortstraw live again (and it’s always fun watching them perform) so I’m definitely looking forward to this edition of Park Acoustics. Tickets cost R120 online on the Park Acoustics website or R150 at the gate.
