It would seem all I am good for these days is offering you guys the chance to win tickets to events! There’s still the Taste at Simon’s comp running until Thursday and I made a mama-to-be’s day last Friday by telling her she won the Mommy Me time fair hamper! (Worth R770!) If my Instagram feed was anything to go by, the fair looked like so much fun! So I think I have a good track record when it comes to recommending cool events around our city!

And here I am yet again to tell you about another event you may want to get to! And it’s something that the kids will enjoy as much as the old foggies because there’s a kids area with lots of fun stuff for them to do! (R50 per child)  PLUS you could win DOUBLE tickets by following three easy steps at the end of this post. (Worth R240 a set!)

Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever summer music concert series, Live@Vergenoegd.

To be held every first Sunday of the month over the summer, Live@Vergenoegd will feature some of South Africa’s best musicians including Goodluck, Ard Matthews (of Just Jinjer), Monark, Jimmy Nevis, and Arno Carstens.

Much like First Thursdays has taken over Cape Town, Live@Vergenoegd will make “First Sundays” the new thing for music lovers who want to get out of the city to enjoy a day with friends, family, delicious wine, bubbly and food – and of course great music – all set on the estate’s idyllic green lawns.

The team at Vergenoegd have carefully chosen this lineup of top local talent to create the perfect summer picnic music experience.

Goodluck who are playing this Saturday, are known for their incredible and energetic live performances and their music is an irresistible blend of electronica, pop and subtle influences of jazz. The trio have toured Africa, Europe and the UK with their unique sound.


* Each concert begins at 12:00 and ends at 18:00. The music kicks off with an opening act at 14:30, with the headline act on stage at 16:00.
