Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival 2016

This is the 10th instalment of the Cape Town Folk ‘n Acoustic Music Festival. 22 South African artists will perform completely acoustically in an unplugged, intimate, concert-style setting, stripped down to the essence of the songs. The evening is set to be an experience of the finest musical storytelling from the personal journeys of some of South Africa’s best musicians and songwriters.

The event organiser, Gavin Minter from Real Wired Music, says that he is very excited about this year`s performers: “If you remember bands like Z-Astaire, Ella Mental, The Usual, Delta Blue, Sweatband, HAMMAK, Springbok Nude Girls, Just Jinjer, Zen What, and SA’s most renowned guitar duo Steve Newman and Tony Cox, then this year`s festival is going to be a treat for you. We will feature all the singers from the mentioned bands, plus a few more exceptionally talented artists have been added to this year`s Winter instalment of the Cape Town Folk n Acoustic Music Festival.”
