Best leap year events in the Western Cape (2020)

This episode covers Monday 24 February to Sunday 1 March 2020.

We start with two events at the Artscape Theatre: the annual Design Indaba during the week and the Cape Town Comedy Festival on the weekend. We then enjoy music from American metalcore band Crown the Empire, an ‘afro-symphonic’ extravaganza with the RMB Starlight Classics, and the annual Robertson Wine Valley Hands-on-Harvest festival. To end, we celebrate the leap year with two great events to make the most of the extra day this month: the Cape Town Biodegradable Festival and the grand opening street party for SA Cocktail Week.
