All roads lead to Green Market Square in the CBD of Cape Town today, as the annual free concert, a precursor to the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF), kicks off at 5pm.

 

Throngs of music-loving Capetonians from all walks of life; are expected to fill the venue to capacity, if past experiences are anything to go by. The central venue, a bustling flea and craft market by day, is expected to draw the usual kaleidoscope of colour, symbolic of the diversity of the Mother City.

 

With unconfirmed rumours doing rounds that the City of Cape Town could lose the two-day extravaganza dubbed Africa’s Grandest Gathering, to a rival city, residents will want to show their support by turning up in droves.

 

The CTIJF proper, which has become a landmark on South Africa’s entertainment landscape, takes place this Friday and Saturday nights (5-6 April), at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in the CBD, where a sell-out crowd is guaranteed.
