Desmond and the Tutus

JBay – The event organisers are proud to announce the music lineup at the Corona Sunset Sessions, to be held at the Corona Open JBay contest site. The Corona Sunset Sessions will take place over both festival weekends 5-7 July and 12-14 July, and will feature some top South African musical acts.

The Corona Sunset  Sessions are all complimentary, and proudly brought to you by the Corona Open JBay. There will be 12 bands or artists over the two weekends, and every one of the shows are completely free of charge. There are no tickets to be bought, no bookings to be made and no queuing for anything. Just pitch up and enjoy the vibes.

The Corona Sunset Sessions will take place in Pepper Street during the weekend evenings. Just make your way to the Corona Open prize-giving stage, where the bands will be setup for the evening shows.

Venerated indie rock outfit Desmond and the Tutus is one of the headline acts, and they will be rocking the house on Saturday 7 July, along with Nic Preen and The World Of Birds. 

Friday 13 July, lucky for some, will see the hugely popular Cape Town-based rock act aKing perform, along with young and widely-liked Cape Town indie /rock band Crosscurrent, and looks like it will be a huge night.

Good old rock ’n roll with a mix of dirty blues is the order of the day on the final evening of the Corona Sunset Sessions, as Jozi-based rock act Shadowclub take to the stage. One of the most celebrated local bands, Shadowclub will get the party going and will finish this year’s free Music Sessions on a high note. It’ll be busy on the final night, so pull in early.
