Jack Parow Announces “Parow Fest” In Netherlands

Who needs to be big in Japan when they give you your own goddam festival in the Netherlands?

Jack Parow’s been working on his fourth full length album and with a release date scheduled for September 2017, it’s about bloody time. Johnny de Ridder from Fokofpolisiekar will be the main producer and the current working title is “Africa for Beginners”.

Top Notch, a record label from The Netherlands, was also elated by this news and offered Jack Parow a licensing deal to release his album there.

To celebrate this joyous occasion Jack will have his own festival, aka PAROW FEST, to launch his new album in the Netherlands… dik fancy. The festival will be held at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht on 4th November.

“It’s mind-blowing and an absolute honour to have my own festival in another country.  I’m thankful that they gave this opportunity to me.  I’m amped and it’s gonna be a JOL!!  My aim is to eventually take South African bands with me, because I want to punt South Africa and South African music as much as possible and this could be a great channel to do it,” says Parow.

Check out Jack Parow & De Kraaien new video for their track ‘Laat Je Kop Ontplof’ below.
