Vergenoegd Wine Estate launches Summer Concert Series


live-at-vergenoegdVergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever summer music concert series, Live@Vergenoegd.

To be held every first Sunday of the month over the summer, Live@Vergenoegd will feature some of South Africa’s best musicians including Goodluck, Ard Matthews of Just Jinjer, Monark, Jimmy Nevis, and Arno Carstens.

Much like First Thursdays has taken over Cape Town, Live@Vergenoegd will make “First Sundays” the new thing for music lovers who want to get out of the city to enjoy a day with friends, family, delicious wine, bubbly and food – and of course great music – all set on the estate’s idyllic green lawns.

Ideally situated between Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Somerset West, just off the N2, Vergenoegd is the perfect Sunday concert venue no matter where you’re coming from. In just 30 minutes you can be parked, camped out on the grass, with a delicious glass of Runner Duck white or red in hand, ready for the concert to start. Small fold-up chairs and umbrellas are allowed in the designated area.

Live@Vergenoegd tickets are only R120 per adult and R50 for under 12’s (there will be a dedicated kids’ area to keep the little ones entertained). Vergenoegd wine, food and drinks will be on sale on the day from a great selection of traders (note: you may not bring your own food or drinks).

Or choose a Live@Vergenoegd VIP Package – and we’ll take care of everything for you. VIP packages are sold in pairs, but we’ll gladly accommodate uneven numbers. For R1100 per package you get:

  • Two tickets to the concert;
  • VIP parking and entrance;
  • A separate area with an excellent view of the stage;
  • Comfortable seating;
  • Private toilets;
  • Access to the main concert area;

VIP packages are limited per concert.
