It’s the season to be dancing, especially with the new year ahead of us! If you enjoy swing, jazz, dancing and a good time, head over to the Silo museum for a series of free concerts.

Live music performances are becoming more popular in Cape Town and you’ll want to make sure that you take a turn by the Silo District for these amazing performances. All for free too!
