Like the high-quality action on the field, the World Schools Festival also has top-notch entertainment planned for Paarl Boys’ High School’s 150-year anniversary celebrations in the picturesque Western Cape Town between 2-7 April.
The festival will not only consist of four match days of mouth-watering schoolboy encounters and will also have five of the country’s top bands in action.
The entertainment will include appearances by Juan Boucher (April 3), Snotkop (April 4), Spoegwolf (April 6) while Die Heuwels Fantasties and Francois van Coke will close the festival in style on April 7.
One of Bellville’s most famous sons, Francois van Coke, who himself had dreams of pursuing a career in rugby, will rock out the festival with his show scheduled for 21:30 on Saturday evening.
Performing artist Juan Boucher shared his excitement in being a part of the celebrations. ‘Rugby is a big part of the South African culture as is music and I’m super excited to be part of a rugby Festival in the lovely town of Paarl in the heart of schoolboy rugby’.
Wimpie van der Sandt CEO of Bok Radio, official entertainment partners for the festival, said “Bok Radio is proud to be associated with the World Schools Festival and look forward to doing what we do best, entertaining the Western Cape community with the very best in local entertainment. The artists appearing at the festival are all gold and platinum selling acts in South Africa and were carefully selected to cater for a wide range of spectators, young and old, and to be in the same class as the rugby that will be played on the field at the tournament.”
