Two years later Cape town, Festive Lights Switch returns this november

The city of Cape Town announced the return of the Festive Lights Switch, after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic

According Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis the annual festival will be back to its original format after a break due to Covid 19 restrictions and lockdown.

The Cape Town’s largest open-air free entertainment event, which marks the beginning of the festive season, is expected to adhere to a thousand people. The theme for this year’s extravaganza celebrates Capetonians’ resilience, and how, as a united force challenges can be overcome.

Programme will be taking place on Sunday, November 27, this year on the Grand Parade and along Adderley Street. It will kickstart at 4pm and is expected to end at 10pm. 

The mayor said ‘The Festive Lights Switch-On is a wonderful Cape Town tradition, and has always been a personal favourite of ours. I am particularly excited this year to welcome back the whole of Cape Town so we can celebrate as a ‘city family’ for the first time since 2019.’

While load shedding is a cause of concern, for possible disruption, the Mayor assured resident there is proactive measures in place.

“In fact, for the first time, the Festive Lights Switch-On event in 2022 will be powered by renewable energy, thanks to the green credits banked by the City by way of the Darling Wind Farm, with whom the City has a partnership,” Hill-Lewis said.

The list of artists will be posted in due time.
