Get to the V&A Waterfront for free live music!

Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront can provide a full day of entertainment for visitors of all ages – and the free live music shows is one of their greatest drawcards

A favoured shopping and dining destination for Cape Town locals and visitors alike, the V&A Waterfront also draws in the crowds by regularly showcasing the country’s top live musical acts.

Set against the splendid backdrop of Table Mountain and overlooking the bustling docks, The Amphitheatre at the V&A Waterfront plays host to musical artists from genres as diverse as classical and jazz to pop and rock!

From general entertainment for all ages to a full day’s schedule of children’s activities during school holidays, there’s always a great mixture of entertainment happening at the Amphitheatre.

In winter, the open-air amphitheatre is covered in a Bedouin tent to offer protection against the elements and ensure maximum comfort for patrons as they kick off their relaxing Friday jazz concerts, featuring a variety of local jazz legends.

Come summer, the tent is packed away and you’re advised to bring a hat and sunscreen to filter out the sun while thrilling to afternoon concerts featuring some of the most popular acts in Cape Town.

There is always something happening at the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre so make sure you check out the Event Calender for regular updates.
