The Two Oceans Aquarium, together with entertainment website Texx and the City, are joining forces once again to host After Dark 2019, their second stripped down series of events this winter featuring some of the Mother City’s finest bands.

Shadowclub, Dangerfields, Manny Walters and The Steezies are among the artists lined up to perform this year.

  • Over four nights in May, June, July and August 2019, the viewing area in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit will be transformed into a cozy, living room-style setting where you’ll be able to enjoy two bands on each evening.

Holding 1.6 million litres of sea water, the I&J Ocean Exhibit provides a massive home to stingrays, musselcracker, sea turtles and many more marine creatures. There really is no better, or more beautiful backdrop for any event.

“The Two Oceans Aquarium family was totally blown away by the success of After Dark 2018, so repeating these events in 2019 was an absolute no-brainer for us. In fact, we’ve added an extra date, and we’re over the moon to be working with Tecla Ciolfi again – we couldn’t do this without Texx and the City!” says Two Oceans Aquarium Marketing Manager Ingrid Sinclair.

“This year, we think Cape Town audiences will respond to the creativity of the music on offer and we’ve lined up truly compelling acts; this series of concerts is a testament to the talent that proliferates in South Africa.”

Nautical themed microbrewery, Drifter Brewing Company will also provide either a tasty Buchu-infused Gin ‘n’ Tonic or a Pick Me Up Pale Ale to each guest upon arrival and the full range of Drifter beers will be on sale throughout each event.
