It feels like there’s always something brewing at the Waterfront. Enter from almost any side, and you will be greeted with music hanging in the air from the local buskers. It’s a popular location all year round. And as with many Capetonian institutions, during peak season (December to February) everything picks up a notch or two.

But most of the time you can pop in almost any time of the day, and you will find something happening at the Waterfront.

The Silo Concerts

The Silo District is a recent addition to the Waterfront scene. It includes the formidable Zeitz MOCAA museum. Special contemporary and classical music concerts are hosted from December to February. Entry to the concerts are free. Concerts are Friday afternoons, from 7pm.

These occur all year round, on the last Saturday of every month from 10am to 3pm. Entry is free. It strives to create a unique creative market experience, with two partners, Cape Craft and the Design Institute. The market aims to offer young talented artists a platform to showcase their innovative products, getting direct feedback from the public. While you are browsing the funky products, young up-and-coming performers will keep you entertained with music in the background. It’s a very exclusive market, so you are sure to find exceptional products not widely available.

The Galileo Open Air Cinema

If you were a fan of the drive-in cinema, you will love this concept – watching a fun movie alfresco.  It is hosted at the new Battery Park, every 2nd Friday from October to April. The tickets range from R89 to R175 per person. You can choose to spruce up your movie experience yourself, or pay for one of their nifty seats or blankets. Want to impress someone special? Book a Snuggle spot, which includes a mattress in the front row, blankets and pillows, plus chocolates and Coke.
