Make sure to tune in to this 2-hour live show presented by Jägermeister. A career spanning FOKOF performances will be streamed live while Die Bende celebrates their 17th birthday.
In 2019, Fokofpolisiekar celebrated their 16th birthday at Loftus Park in Pretoria. It was a career highlight when 4000 people showed up to celebrate with the band. This success inspired the band to plan a birthday party for every year; with the addition of a Cape Town party.
Fast forward to 2020. Even before the band could start planning this year’s parties, COVID-19 happened and everything changed overnight.
“It has been a shock to the system and we had to quickly come up with new ideas to keep the pot cooking. People across the globe have been asking us to consider a livestream show and there is no better time than now and no better reason than the band turning 17 years old!’’ adds Wynand Myburgh.
This monster 2-hour set will be packed with songs that the band wrote and recorded during their 17-year existence. They will play their old classics, all the fan favorites and also some of the songs that have not been played in years.

‘’We are busy working on new tracks and we might even throw a new one into the set,” says Johnny de Ridder.

If you have never seen us live, not seen us play in years, are a regular at our shows and miss it, or are living outside South Africa, make sure to livestream this show! Tune in from wherever and celebrate with us.”
