These outdoor music events take place on the estate’s lawn, where guests can enjoy watching top acts in an intimate setting. Seating is allocated on a first-come-first-serve manner, so do arrive early to pick your preferred spot.

Backsberg also offers pre-ordered picnic baskets, purchasable via Quicket, as well as a food court offering for guests who’d prefer to purchase food at the venue. Food truck, Die Worsrol, will serve up delicious delights including German, Asian and vegetarian options all served with complementary sides. Lickity Split – the food truck that is every sweet tooth’s dream, will also have a selection of Belgian waffles, ice creams and hot drinks on offer.

There’ll also be some fun activations, including a flower-crown building station and a play area for kids complete with a jumping castle and face painting facilities. Presenters Cape Talk will host activations too.

Each guest, 18 and over, will receive a complimentary glass of Backsberg wine included in their ticket price, and wine and soft drinks will be available to purchase thereafter. Note: no alcohol may be brought onto the premises.

Backsberg’s 10th Annual Picnic Concerts presented by Cape Talk are going to be nothing short of sensational. “We are thrilled to offer our guests a lineup of sought-after South African musicians, and in doing so, support our local entertainment industry,” says Simon Back, fourth generation owner and CEO of Backsberg.
