Following last year’s successful sold out series, After Dark returns to one of South Africa’s premier tourist attractions.
The Two Oceans Aquarium, together with entertainment website Texx and the City, are joining forces once again to host their second stripped down series of events this winter featuring some of the Mother City’s finest bands.
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.
“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.”
About the renewal of After Dark, Texx and the City’s Founder and Editor Tecla Ciolfi says, “The team at Two Oceans Aquarium are some of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Last year’s series was a career high for me so to get to do this all over again, with an additional show, is a real honour.”
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.
This year, After Dark ticket holders will also have access to a special Two Oceans Aquarium membership offer! Every After Dark ticket will entitle the holder to a year’s unlimited access to the Aquarium for just R245 (usual price R430).
