Backsberg’s 10th Annual Picnic Concerts will return in February 2019, with a lineup that music lovers will not want to miss!

Next year’s concertgoers can expect to see A-list South African musicians including Shortstraw, Bottomless Coffee, Zolani from Freshly Ground, Beatenberg and Opposite the Other. The concerts will take place outdoors on the lawn where guests can enjoy watching these top acts in an intimate setting. Seating will be handled in a first-come-first-serve manner, so get there early to pick your preferred spot.

Aside from the live entertainment, Backsberg will be offering delectable pre-ordered picnic baskets, purchasable via Quicket, as well as a food court offering if you’d like to buy food at the venue. Popular food truck, Die Worsrol, will be serving up delicious delights including German, Asian and vegetarian options all served with complimentary sides. Furthermore, Lickity Split – the food truck that is every sweet tooth’s dream – will have a gorgeous selection of Belgian waffles, ice creams and hot drinks on offer.

Just in case world-class musical acts, picnics under the oak trees and heavenly foods weren’t enough, Backsberg will also be offering some fun activities including a flower-crown building station and a play area for kids, complete with a jumping castle and face painting facilities.

Last, but definitely not least, each guest (18 and over) will receive a complimentary glass of Backsberg wine included in their ticket price, and wine and soft drinks will be available to purchase thereafter.

Ticket pricing ranges from R190 per ticket to R220 per ticket.
