So we’re kicking off our Kirstenbosch Summer Concert freebies with a big one. As well as giving away tickets to this Sunday’s concert to see Van Coke Kartel, Die Heuwels, Jack Parow and JR, we’re also giving away a signed Van Coke Kartel guitar sponsored by Music Connection.
So here’s how this works:
1. Like Mahala and Van Coke Kartel on Facebook.
2. Tag both page in your status and tell us why you want this guitar.
3. For extra points, share this link on Facebook and Twitter.
Simple! Now scroll down to check out a picture of the guitar up for grabs. Pretty damn sweet!
Musicians Francois van Coke, Wynand Myburgh, Hunter Kennedy and Pierre Greeff grew up in Bellville and played in many bands over the years, of which Fokofpolisiekar is the best known. When Fokofpolisiekar took a break in 2007, the Afikaans rock bands Van Coke Cartel and Die Heuwels Fantasties were formed. Both groups have since won several music awards.
Jack Parow is an Afrikaans rapper, also from Belville. His debut self titled album was released in 2010 and debut single, Cooler as ekke, has become his most recognizable song.
Our line-up of Afrikaans musicians from Bellville will be joined by JR from Joburg, one of South Africa’s rising stars of Hip Hop.
