More info about the artists for this edition

Shortstraw need no introduction. They are a band from Joburg. They make music. Music that sounds like someone blowing on a cup of tea that’s too hot or like a pot of bolognese bubbling in the background.

Desmond & The Tutus (who also need no introduction) have been scare-crowing across the world’s stages with their unique, some might call it niche, brand of kwela-indie-punk for more than 14 years.

Van Pletzen is hier om kak lekke vibes te deel met almal op die aarde se bol! For the English folks reading this: “Van Pletzen are heres to share their shit fun vibes with everyones on the Earth bolls” – I hope this makes sense.

The World of Birds are a band from Cape Town, South Africa. I don’t know much about them, but I’m sure they’re going to bring a lekker vibe this edition of Park Acoustics.

  1. For my all time favourite bands Shortstraw… I will give up talking for a whole week, just so I can make sure I am able to scream at the top of my voice, front and centre, “YOU’RE SUCH A BITCH IN THE MORNING” in all my friends faces – followed by encouraging them to “spend some money.”
