Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts in association with Old Mutual released the list of artistes performing in the upcoming season and features a diverse mix of genres with fresh, exciting new talent on offer, as well as many much-loved favourites.

It also gives us an opportunity to inspire people to do great things everyday and amplify their financial notes.” said Thobile Tshabalala Head of Old Mutual Brand.
