Fokofpolisiekar

Band

Cape Town’s radical rockers Fokofpolisiekar formed in 2003, resolving to produce new music “their own way” Francois van Coke, Hunter Kennedy, Johnny de Ridder, Wynand Myburgh and Jaco Venter have become a household name – not only for the outrageous name of their act but because their songs speak to the feelings of a new generation of post-apartheid Afrikaans youth.

The band has played at just about every major music festival in the country, as well as at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium in 2004. To date, Fokofpolisiekar have released three albums, won numerous awards and appeared in a number of music magazines including the alternative British publication Dazed and Confused.
