The popular Picnic Concerts series annually held on Backsberg Estate Cellars in Paarl has received added impetus through a partnership with leading consumer magazine Good Housekeeping. Four top-class musical acts are scheduled to play at Backsberg for these summer gigs held in the shade of the Simonsberg Mountain.
“Wine and hospitality have always been an integral part of the Backsberg tradition,” says Back, “and our Sunday picnic concerts have allowed Backsberg to bring these two elements together in what has now become a winelands institution. We have an exciting line-up of musicians this year who will as usual rock the valley, adding to the energy and humdrum of the current harvest season.”
The schedule for the Backsberg Picnic Concert Series is as follows:
Sunday, February 26 – Nomadic Orchestra
March 5 – Blues Broers
March 12 – Valiant Swart & Akkedis Band
March 19 – Taxi Violence
* Tickets are R120 from www.webtickets.co.za and R150 at the gate. Students pay R60 and children under 12 get in free. Tickets can also be bought directly from Backsberg at R100.
Food and snack boxes will be available on the day. Snack boxes can be pre-ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org at a cost of R220 for two people sharing.
Concert gates open at 3pm. “No own alcohol is allowed.” Wine and other beverages will be on sale.
