After two previous sold-out runs, After Dark returned to the Two Oceans Aquarium in 2023! Together with entertainment website Texx and the City, we hosted three amazing live concerts, featuring some of Cape Town's finest bands, ISO, Yndian Mynah, Van Der Aven, Retro Dizzy, MaxX & Love, and Orah & The Kites.
The fascinating I&J Oceans Exhibit played host to three sold-out crowds over three nights in June, July, and August. The popular exhibit was transformed into a cosy, lounge-style setting where our audiences were able to enjoy two bands each night, as well as the beautiful marine life at the Aquarium.
"After Dark - what a lovely experience! Not only were the bands amazing, it was so cool to experience a live concert in a space like this. It was definitely a magical evening and I cannot wait for the next one. I can only imagine that it'll only get better with time. What an amazing initiative!"

About the resurgence of After Dark, Texx and the City’s Founder & Editor Tecla Ciolfi says, “The Two Oceans Aquarium is one of my favourite places in the world, so to have the honour to return to do this event series post-Covid is incredibly exciting for me".
We would like to extend a huge word of thanks to Suncamino, who provided an amazing bar and saw to it that our guests were treated to delicious refreshments throughout the series, and Toms, who ensured that our sound and musical instruments were at the highest level. Without these outstanding partners, After Dark would not have been the success that it was.
To all who supported and attended the event - it was an honour to host you and we cannot begin to thank you enough for joining us in enjoying this unique and memorable experience. We'll see you at the next one!
