Best cultural festivals in the Western Cape (2020)

This episode covers Monday 2 March to Sunday 8 March 2020.

We start with two inspiring events: Pecha Kucha Cape Town and Daily Maverick’s The Gathering. We then enjoy music at the Huawei KDay in Durbanville, travel at The Getaway Show in Stellenbosch, and the best cultural festivals in the Western Cape, including SpiritFest in Swellendam, The Knysna Literary Festival, the Toyota University of Stellenbosch Woordfees, and the Zabalaza Theatre Festival at the Baxter Theatre.
