The V&A Waterfront hosted the 20th anniversary of the first Cape Town Jazzathon in the amphitheatre over the weekend. Music lovers were there to welcome it back after the last Jazzathon was hosted at this venue seven years ago. With the support shown this weekend the organisers are hoping that it will become a fixture on the local entertainment calender again. Gary van Dyk caught up with some of our readers enjoying the music.

When the music moves you at Jazzathon you’ve got to get up and dance as these women demonstrate.
