One of South Africa’s biggest, most iconic, and much-loved festivals, the Corona Sunsets Festival, returns on Saturday, April 9th to the Edgar Lipsett Oval Field, Clifton, Cape Town, with a star-studded line-up including three international and six local acts.

“The line-up is extraordinary, and the setting could not be better for what is going to be the ultimate end of summer celebration. It’s going to be an unmissable, magical experience with happy, beautiful people and lifelong memories made,” says event organizer Shaun Duwe.
