Kirstenbosch New Year's Eve Concert: Goldfish / Hot Water

GoldFish bring a spectacular and eclectic genre-defying mix of live instruments, deliciously groovy house beats, trip-hop infused vocals and a searing live performance to the sometimes robotic and formulaic world of electronic music.

It is their powerful merger of soulful, live instruments combined with the raw tribal energy of technical perfection that has catapulted this uber-talented duo from impromptu jams at a tiny beach club in Cape Town, to headline appearances at the biggest festivals around the world.

Blending dance-inducing African rhythms and melodies with uplifting folk, rock and pop, Hot Water weaves a tapestry that is accessible and sought-after across the world. Their song Wamkelekile, a township-jive based track, was selected for use in the Warner Bros blockbuster film BLENDED and reached 1 million streams on Spotify.

Feel good, interactive, theatrical and absolutely authentic, Hot Water’s live performances deliver the kind of magic that leave people with a sense of joy and connectedness that lasts long after the music has flown off into the night.

Tip: The gates open at 7pm so arrive early to secure the perfect spot to watch these amazing performers do what they do best.
