Backsberg’s 11th Annual Picnic Concert Series is finally here and the 2020 series is set to be truly spectacular. The third act of the season will be a new addition to the Backsberg stage, Arno Carstens. Arno, along with band members David and Werner, will be hitting the little Cape Winelands stage on Sunday, 1 March 2020.
Doors open at 3pm with the opening act – Crosscurrent – taking the stage at 4pm. Arno Carstens will take over shortly thereafter at 5pm and the final set ends just before 7pm.
Pre-ordered picnic boxes are available for purchase in advance at Quicket checkout and are absolutely scrumptious. Backsberg wine, beer and cider will be available for purchase on-site on the day for patrons 18 years and older as well as an assortment of easy foods and beverages – think wraps, burgers, fries, soft drinks and water. There are also a couple of fantastic prizes up for grabs both prior to the concert via social media and on the day so be sure to keep an eye out for these.
Join in on the fun! After all, there’s nothing better than ending off the weekend lazing under the trees on the sprawling lawns of the Backsberg estate enjoying fine wines, great food and live music by some of the best local talent SA has to offer.
