Francois van Coke & Vriende 2020 is officially a go, with your old favourites and some new faces joining the family

The last time we checked, lockdown was begrudgingly still a thing, but you didn’t think that was going to keep Francois Van Coke and his homies down, did you?

Precisely. Which is why we’re incredible excited to announce that Francois van Coke & Vriende 2020 will be live streamed this year, from Cape Town on the 18th of September at 8pm SAST.

“This show has become a yearly highlight for us and we won’t let the pandemic stop us. I turn 40 on the 18th of September and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than sharing a stage with my friends and to do what I love most,” Francois excitedly explains.

Francois van Coke & Vriende aren’t just good friends and co-artists, they have also all co-written songs with Francois in the past. It has become tradition for Francois to co-write, record and release songs with “new” friends in the build-up to the big event every year.

This year Van Pletzen, Matthew Mole and Tarryn Lamb are the “new” friends. Fans can look forward to two new collaborations with Van Pletzen and Matthew Mole which will be released soon.
