"The event has such a rich heritage," says Tessa van Staden, CapeTalk station manager. "Traditionally it's the time when families connect over a picnic meal and great music. That hasn't changed - the event still pays homage to everyone's favourite hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's... the songs everyone in the family can sing along to. The only change is that this year the concert is online for everyone to watch from their garden or lounge."
The music show kicks off with Cape Town's premier cover band, Black Ties, for their unique take on iconic songs. Moonstruck newcomers Craig Lucas and Paxton will follow with the sunset session from the V&A Waterfront, after which Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels take to the stage with their rendition of popular party hits. CapeTalk presenter Africa Melane hosts the show and will be joined by other CapeTalk presenters.
The 90-minute music production will be streamed online on Saturday, 27 February, at 7pm. Music lovers and Moonstruck fans are encourage to register here
