Backsberg Wine Estate has released the lineup for their much anticipated 2018 Picnic Concert Series which will be taking place every Sunday from 18 February to 18 March.
This year’s lineup is as follows:
- Sun, 18 Feb: Spoegwolf
- Sun, 25 Feb: Valiant Swart
- Sun, 4 Mar: Manouche
- Sun, 11 Mar: A double bill with Sutherland and Nic Preen – the lead singer of Al Bairre
- Sun, 18 Mar: Bottomless Coffee Band
I’m going to be joining them on the 18th of Feb. Will be honest, I don’t know the band Spoegwolf, but did a quick Google and they seem quite cool.
This picnic series which first took place back in 2010 has become a summertime staple with a strong following, and I really can see why. Ending off your weekend lazing around under leafy trees on their sprawling lawns while enjoying some good food & wine and some great SA music. It definitely brings the saying “Sunday fun day” to life. 😉
For those with little ones, bring them along to enjoy the jumping castles & lawn games. This is a totally family-friendly affair.
