Last year Fokofpolisiekar celebrated their 16th birthday at Loftus Park in Pretoria and it was a career highlight for Die Bende after 4000 people showed up to celebrate.
This success inspired the band to plan a birthday party for every year, with the addition of a Cape Town party. But 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!’’ explains 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 favourites and also some of the songs that have not been played in years.
How will this work:
- On the day of the show, the ticket holder will receive an email with the unique event link. With this link you will be able to access the livestream by entering the email address used when the ticket was purchased and your order number.
- Please note that if you order Fokof Lager after 1 July 2020 you might not get it in time for the livestream show.
- You will be able to watch the livestream on your Smart TV by using the browser on the TV.
- If you have any device (Apple TV, Google chromecast, etc.) that can ‘airplay’ or ‘screen mirror’, you will be able to play it from your phone to the device.
- Another option is to connect your laptop to your TV via a HDMI cable.
- Alternatively you can enjoy watching the show on your smartphone or tablet in your hand or the laptop on your lap, with easy access to the video player’s chat box.
