Cape Town – Francois van Coke recently launched a crowdfunding venture to get himself and his band, Die Gevaar, to Amsterdam. 

Francois van Coke fell in love with Amsterdam on his first visit there with Fokofpolisiekar in 2006 and has always tried to go back as often as possible. Over the years he managed to play quite a few shows in The Netherlands with several bands, but now it is Francois’ dream to take his band, Die Gevaar, there.

Francois van Coke launched a crowdfunding campaign via Thundafund with the goal to raise R200 000 / €12500 to get himself and Die Gevaar to The Netherlands to perform an epic show at Melkweg in Amsterdam on Tuesday, 14 November 2017. 

Francois explains:

"Although I have visited The Netherlands with various other musical projects over the past 11 years, I have only once before performed with Die Gevaar in Amsterdam. We have since been hard at work creating a live rock 'n roll spectacular with songs from my debut album, my latest album Hierdie is die Lewe, Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel classics. All of us are super amped to return in November 2017 and showcase our energetic live show."

By backing this venture, pledgers will secure their tickets and fantastic rewards and can count the days until the night that Afrikaans rock strikes Amsterdam.
