Even after rebranding to become the Cape Town Nu World Festival this year, we still aimed to provide an accessible inner-city music festival showcasing the best music in a format that is crafted to enlighten, entertain and engage. An extensive and diverse lineup performed over two days at the Cape Town City Hall on 3 separate stages.
‘Wild & Wise’ was the theme for this year’s iteration, with a focus on the juxtaposition of the old and the new, the knowing and naive – resulting in some exciting collaborations, pairing local legends with fresh up-and-coming artists.
