The Two Oceans Aquarium & Texx and the City Present: After Dark 2023


Following two sold out runs, After Dark returns to one of South Africa’s premier tourist attractions. ISO, Yndian Mynah, Van Der Aven, Retro Dizzy, MaxX & Love and Orah & The Kites are the artists lined up to perform this year.

The Two Oceans Aquarium, together with entertainment website Texx and the City, are joining forces once again to host their third stripped down series of events this winter featuring some of the Mother City’s finest bands.
Over three nights in June, July and August 2023, the viewing area in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit will be transformed into a cozy, living room-style setting where you’ll be able to enjoy two bands on each evening.
Holding 1.6 million litres of seawater, the I&J Ocean Exhibit provides a massive home to stingrays, musselcracker, sea turtles and many more marine creatures. There really is no better or more beautiful backdrop for any event.
“We’re thrilled to bring After Dark back to the Two Oceans Aquarium! Experiencing incredible South African talent in front of our window into the ocean is certainly going to be Cape Town’s most unique music experience, and it’s incredibly exciting to be working with Texx And The City again to bring back this exciting concert series. Sea you there!” exclaimed Two Oceans Aquarium Marketing Manager Devon Bowen.
About the resurgence of After Dark, Texx and the City’s Founder & Editor Tecla Ciolfi says, “The Two Oceans Aquarium is one of my favourites places in the world, so to have the honour to return to do this event series post-Covid is incredibly exciting for me. This year we’ve put together the most phenomenal line-up and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”
Doors open at 6:30pm sharp, so come early before the music starts at 8pm and explore the Two Ocean Aquarium when the lights are low.
