Francois van Coke

South Africa


FRANCOIS VAN COKE rose to fame as the iconic front man of legendary South African rock bands Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel before he kicked his solo career into gear in 2015 with the release of his first solo album and massive hit, 'Toe Vind Ek Jou'.

Since 2015, Francois has released three solo popular albums – 'Francois van Coke', 'Hierdie is die Lewe' and 'Dagdrome in Suburbia'. His latest album carries his current big hit single and crowd favourite, 'Dagdrome in Suburbia', featuring Spoegwolf.

Francois is celebrated as South Africa’s premium live solo rock act; always in demand and with regular sold-out shows. His biggest feat being the two sold-out arena shows at Time Square in Pretoria in 2018 and 2019 called Francois van Coke & Vriende. These premium events showcased his collaborations with South Africa’s finest talent including Riky Rick, Karen Zoid, Early B, Spoegwolf, Fokofpolisiekar, Jack Parow and many more.

With the onset of COVID 19 in 2020, Francois did his first solo livestream show which was also the first time in eleven years that he performed 100% solo - just him on his acoustic. The show was streamed in 46 countries and received raving reviews all round.
