Fancourt kicks off the festive season early this year with an outdoor concert on the lawns with one of South Africa’s finest musical legends, Johnny Clegg on Saturday, 3 November. The concert starts at 16:30.
Johnny Clegg is a music icon and one of the country’s outstanding musical ambassadors, who regularly plays to audiences across the globe at sold out venues.
There are few South Africans who haven’t danced or sung along to his string of hit songs that include ‘Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World’, ‘Scatterlings of Africa’, ‘Impi’, ‘Great Heart’ and ‘African Sky Blue’.
A dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight, he is one of our most passionate cultural ‘exports’ and has been instrumental in putting the ‘new’ South Africa on the map.
Visitors can look forward to his signature electric stage performance backed by an energetic backing band, in a setting that is simply spectacular.
Concertgoers may bring along their own picnic blankets and deck chairs to enjoy the concert in comfort. For their convenience various food stalls and a beer garden will be available. Please note that no alcohol may be allowed to be brought onto the premises.
Gates will open at 14:00, with the concert starting at 16:30. Tickets are available through Computicket at R160 for adults and R80 for children under 13, while children between 0 and 5 years enter free.
