The year was 2019. Cape Town boomed with festivals, the idea of a global pandemic was merely a whisper in the wind of wild imaginings, and music was the extension cord that connected all of us – in one place where we could succumb to its magic.
One of the most anticipated festivals of the year was undoubtedly the Corona Sunsets Festival. Sporting the backdrop of Clifton’s Oval Field, it was one of 2019’s ultimate sunlit sentiments of groove.
The last Corona Sunsets Festival took place in 2019 and featured the likes of Fisher, Nora en Pure, Prince Kaybee, Shimza, Bantwanas, Goodluck, Abby Nurock and more.
Two long years have passed since then. Festival goers went into retirement and things changed. However, as the festival scene in the Cape starts slowly blossoming again in 2022 – we couldn’t have been more thrilled to hear of the return of the Corona Sunsets Festival, and the opportunity to give the first word in the title its original positive connotation.
Following the success of the Corona Chasing Sunsets event series this summer, the iconic festival returns. Festival-goers can expect a similar star-studded line-up of artists. And, for those who purchased a ticket for the 2020 edition, anyone with a valid ticket from Corona Sunsets Festival 2020 can still redeem their ticket for this event.
The magnificent home of the sunset, Clifton’s Oval Field, will again host this spectacular show, promising sensational outdoor moments with friends, incredible music, and the ultimate sunset moment over the Atlantic Ocean. Beyond the views, music and vibrance, the show will also present locally sourced and organic craft food and art vendors as well as Corona merchandise for sale.
“It’s been an incredible summer of Chasing Sunsets events and what better way to wrap up the summer than to save the best for last with the return of the biggest Corona Sunsets Festival yet,” says Melanie Nicholson, Corona SA Marketing Manager.
