2015 is turning out to be an awesome year. I’ve already had my fair share of local music in the first 2 months, but there’s one event that I have not attended in 2015 yet, Park Acoustics. Sadly I missed the first one (which was held on the 25th of January) because I was at Up The Creek.
Now in it’s 5th year, Park Acoustics has become one of the most fun things to do in the capital city. This one day music event (which takes once a month at the Voortrekker Monument) attracts hundreds of fans of good music and has seen tons of talented local and international acts performing on its stages over the years. The February edition of Park Acoustics (which actually takes place on the 1st of March) is coming up soon and it looks like it will be an awesome party.
The next edition of Park Acoustics will feature performances by Go Barefoot (an Indie Kwela Folk Rock band from Johannesburg), The Shabeen (a folk punk act from Cape Town), We Are Charlie (an Indie rock band from Pretoria), The Plastics (a Psychedelic Indie Pop act from Cape Town) and Bellville rock legends, aKING. Besides this, Dis & Dat (Italy), Jullian Gomes, Rolo and Soul Sista will be also be spinning tunes and keeping folks entertained on the Cabin Fever Dance Floor. And that’s not all, after the music stops DJ Michael Lesar will be entertaining people with some epic swinging dancey tunes and Francois van As, Dusty Rich and Jason Goliath will be making people laugh at the Sunset Comedy Stage. Gates open at 10 AM and the first act will be on stage at 11 AM.
