Concerts in the Park on Sunday, 18th December 2022, featuring Francois Van Coke and Tasché

Cape Town’s favourite, Concerts in the Park, is back with an impressive event in the Mother City’s historical park – De Waal Park.

Concerts in the Park was established with a vision to bring people of all colours, religions and walks of life together to enjoy some of the best musical artists South Africa has to offer. 12 Years later, they are still the go-to events for a unique and lively musical experience.

For the concert on the 18th, Concerts in the Park presents Francois Van Coke and Tasché.

Francois Van Coke rose to fame as the lead vocalist of South African rock bands Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel. In 2015, Francois launched his self-titled debut solo album and kicked off his solo career with the release of Toe Vind Ek Jou featuring Karen Zoid. It became the first Afrikaans album and single to simultaneously jump to number one positions on the SA iTunes Store.

The iconic Francois Van Coke will not be performing alone; he will be sharing the stage with the world-class talent, Tasché.

Tasché became the first female winner and youngest of the reality TV series, The Voice SA 3, in 2019, just after her 19th birthday. She is known for her charismatic stage presence and is carving out her space as the new generation Afrikaans rocker.

So, join us for a Sunday Funday at this tranquil park and bring your friends, family and pets. Please do remember to have your pets on a leash the whole time.

Gates open at 10 am and the concert starts at 1 pm. To get your hands on the tickets, visit the Concerts in the Park website ( or Quicket. Tickets are R99 p/p.

Craving the ultimate summer soundtrack to your Xmas 2022? We’ve got you covered, absorb the halcyon holiday vibes in De Waal Park with legendary Francois Van Coke & Co.

Work’s done and dusted for the year, summer’s finally here, you’ve got the flip-flops & shorts combo out and life is just s-w-e-e-t. Nothing like an epic music fest to add a soundtrack to this sexy summer cocktail. So, dial up the chill factor: relax, let your hair down, arrange the kikoi on the green, green grass and let the music do the talking. And as you may have guessed, we’re alluding to much more than a bit of pre-Xmas “Jingle Bells” under the canopies of De Waal Park’s gigantic trees here. On December 18th you’ll be made merry by the real McCoy, the inimitable, the charismatic, the only Francois Van Coke, ‘local is lekker’ frontman of badass SA rock bands Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Cartel. If that thought doesn’t properly float, errr … rock both your and Santa’s party boat, we don’t know what will.

Famous for his solo albums since 2015 as well as collaborations with the likes of local legendary musos Karen Zoid, Spoegwolf, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Jack Parow, Bellville boy Francois Van Coke allegedly started Fokofpolisiekar as a joke to shock the conservative Afrikaans community, and the name stuck. Urban myth has it that his minister-father asked him to change his surname from Badenhorst to Van Coke as the local church-goers sent in complaints about his son’s performances! This artist’s work needs no introduction to the local market: “Toe Vind Ek Jou” was Most Popular Song, Best Song, Rock and Digital Album of the year back in 2015; in 2022 Francois Van Coke is still going strong with a fourth album called “Kanniedood” that merges ‘old punk and new pop’.

Another (very) local talent, Brackenfell-based Tasche will be supporting Francois Van Coke from the quaint bandstand in The Park as the second band of the day. Winner of the 2019 M-Net The Voice SA, with a subsequent record deal at Universal Music SA, Tasche released her first single in 2019 titled ‘Die Een”. The rest is history and on Dec 18th you can get up close and personal with this irrepressible vocalist under the trees, too.

The Rockets will be rocking the band stand on the 18th December too! No introduction needed to one of South Africa’s most successful pop bands ever – these household names and recipients of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Ghoemas and SAFTA Best Music Show award are a force to be reckoned with. If you’ve missed their 50th anniversary sold-out show at Grand West Arena, come to De Waal Park and catch them there!

Camps Bay High School is famous well beyond the city for their out-of-this-world, superbly accomplished music and drama performances. This show by the Camps Bay High School band is bound to be one of the highlights of Concert In The Park 2022/3 season. Absolutely not to be missed!

See you at our pre-Xmas extravaganza at De Waal Park. Be sure to stash the sunscreen and shades, the vibe will be fiery, the atmosphere sizzling and the music scorching hot. As for the company, we’ll no doubt be kicking up the proverbial storm in The Park. Can you dare not to be there?
