Consisting of some of the country’s most talented artists, Fokofpolisiekar will also get the crowd hyped when the five-man superstar band puts on one of its explosive live performances. Guitarist, Hunter Kennedy, will feature twice at the #fuelyourfun Carling Main Beach Stage on Thursday when he joins his electronic band, Die Heuwels Fantasties.

The following day will see sonic wizard, Phil Moffet, showing exactly why he’s such an innovator of guitar music, creating an array of sounds from classical and blues to country, flamenco and more. Moffett will be in good company on the #fuelyourfun Carling Main Beach Stage with South African rock royalty, Prime Circle, completing the day’s set with some of their award-winning songs.

Mole’s latest album, Run, was co-produced by Brad and Josh Klynsmith, brothers who form part of the MTV MAMA award-winning band, Gangs of Ballet, which will also be taking to the stage that night.

The #SCBF2017 will end on a high note with afro-pop and gospel sensation, Tender Mavundla, getting the crowd going, followed by legendary afro-pop icon, PJ Powers. Contemporary rock group, Just Jinjer, will finish off a sterling line-up.
