Cape Town Summer Concerts & Open-Air Cinema 2014

With all the lovely weather we are having, and one of the hottest months of the year quickly approaching, what could be better than Cape Town summer concerts and open-air movies?

Perhaps it is something to do with my belief that something better, more entertaining and more awesome might just come along just before NYE gets underway. 

Don't be like me darlings... instead, do the sensible thing and start thinking about how you want to bring in the new year right now with these epic events...
