The Dave Matthews band is considered the biggest ticket seller around the world over the past decade. The band has sold over 18 million tickets since its beginnings. The blokes are touring in support of their latest album, Away From the World, which was named by Rolling Stone as among the Top 50 Albums of 2012. The record moved into the Billboard 200 at No. 1, making the Dave Matthews Band the first group in chart history having six consecutive studio albums productions at no 1. Johannesburg-born Dave Matthews hasn’t performed in South Africa. This really is our very first chance to see the Dave Matthews Band live in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Dave Matthews has lived and performed in the United States since the late 80s, and formed the Dave Matthews Band during the early 90s. Renowned for gathering enormously accomplished musicians around him, Dave creates big, rhythm-based acoustic walls of sound that a live show definitely brings to life. The Hyde Hotel team is really thrilled for this landmark Big Concert in Cape Town. We’re looking towards helping to make an amazing evening for all our visitors.

Blooming Wonderful – by end of September, beginning of October the gentle hills of the West Coast break out into an extravaganza of colour, as more than 1200 species of wildflowers burst into bloom. The Darling Wildflower Show, 20-26 September, is a great day trip for our guests at The Hyde. Now in its 96th year, the Show draws tourists, nature lovers, conservationists and photographers from all over the world.
Darling, set in the “Golden Mile” of the Cape Plant Kingdom, is just an hour’s drive from the Hyde, which makes it a wonderful day-trip for nature lovers. Craft and food stalls, tractor rides and a cornucopia of flower displays will delight guests of all ages.
The Show, presented by the Darling Wildflower Society, showcases the unique character of the area, as well as supporting the conservation of this remarkable and fragile floral heritage. The Society has worked with farmers in the area since 1917 to promote the conservation of the wildflower population.
In this way, the Darling farming community has played a central role in the maintenance of botanical diversity in the region, over several generations. Income from the entry tickets goes towards conservation initiatives run by the Darling Wildflower Trust.
