The 505 spirit lives on in Fokofpolisiekar.

Pop artists, graffiti writers and rock stars all wore them, tore them and thrashed them.

Now it’s Fokofpolisiekar’s turn.
No other band embodies the punk spirit of South Africa like Fokofpolisiekar.

Birthed out of a response to their conservative upbringing, Fokofpolisiekar represent this anti-establishment punk spirit to their core.

This year they celebrate their 13th year together as a band and are heading back to where it all started in 2004, Oppikoppi, an institution in itself of rebellion and counter-culture.

This month we will capture the story of Fokofpolisiekar as they journey back to the legendary festival as the final stop on their nationwide tour celebrating their 10th anniversary of their album Swanesang.
