Win Tickets to the May 2017 edition of Park Acoustics!


Great news music fans! The next edition of Park Acoustics takes place on the 21st of May 2017 and it’s going to be a goodie! Not only is Park Acoustics celebrating their 8th birthday this month, but this edition features an amazing line-up.

To date more than 70 editions of Park Acoustics featuring over 150 different acts have been organized and I must say that it’s still one of my favorite monthly expeditions. I’ve attended more than 45 of these events and it never gets old. There’s always something that surprises me.

Park-Acoustics-21-May-2017-720x271 Win Tickets to the May 2017 edition of Park Acoustics!

The May 2017 edition of Park Acoustics will feature performances by Afrikaans Rock Legends Fokofpolisiekar (who recently reached the R700,000 mark in their crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to record a new album independently), SA Blues Rock legends The Black Cat Bones (who always put on one hell of a show), The Tazers (who recently blew rock fans away with stellar performances at That 70s Fest and Mieliepop), The Sextons (who released a new single in December 2016), Late Night Fox (who also blew crowds away at Mieliepop this year) and Moe Joe. Besides this stand-up comedy from Alyn Adams, Lazola Gola and Chris Forrest will have you smiling ear to ear as well.

Take note: No under 18’s will be allowed except if you’re accompanied by your parents. Proof of identification required, no copies, photo’s or temporary documents. Also no glass are permitted into the festival area, please buy cans or decant your booze into plastic bottles.

Tickets cost R120 on the Park Acoustics website. Only 1200 tickets are available online. Tickets at the gate will set you back R150. Student tickets are available for R100 at Capital Craft, Aandklas Hatfield and Arcade Food Bar at Open Window, if you show your valid student card (only 1 student ticket per student card). Take note that tickets are limited to 2000 because the event is being held at Fort Schanskop, so get yours NOW!

Remember: Entrance to the Voortrekker Monument Nature reserve costs R15 per car, so make sure that you have cash on hand for that.

More great news is that Running Wolf’s Rant is giving away a double ticket to this event! All you need to do to enter is leave a comment and describe your excitement for this event with a lyric / phrase from a Fokofpolisiekar song. Make sure that you include an e-mail address so we can reach you. Take note that this competition is NOT open to under 18’s. This competition closes on the 15th of May 2017 at midnight. The winner will be notified in the comments section of this article on the 16th of May 2017.

    I saw Fokkof at Madison’s for the first time in ages the other night, totally epic as per usual. I need to see them rock out Park Acoustics, would be so awesome to see them rocking the fort. If I were anymore excited my mom would probably send me to go see a doctor again. This lyric from Angs Aanval is spot on “Juig besmette asem uit, my moe longe uit. Verwerp die lewenslange stryd vir n plekkie in jou koninkryk”.

  • Antoinette De Jager

    Too stoked, crave al so lank n fokof show!!! “Die oop pad
    het sy tol ge-eis
    om vinniger daar te kom
    sal jy vinniger moet ry
    om vinniger te lewe
    maak jou vinniger dood
