The Premier Interschools Rugby has grown over the past 100 years to become the biggest school sports derby in South Africa. Held every year in August, thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to the town of Paarl to enjoy the matches between the two adversaries.
This year, to make this momentous sporting weekend even more memorable, Mojo Events has created a two-day outdoor music festival, Paarl Jam, to celebrate a shared love of sport, music and all things South African.
Featuring some of SA’s biggest names in music, Paarl Jam is set to take place during the 2019 Premier Interschools on Friday and Saturday, August 2 and 3, on the banks of the Paarl River, just walking distance from all the sporting action. The stellar line-up of main acts includes Night Sky Zombies, Noblemen, BRYNN, The Kiffness, Prime Circle, Francois van Coke and Springbok Nude Girls.
Paarl Jammers can expect two days of non-stop entertainment for the whole family, coupled with good food, cold beer on tap, local wines and of course, live streaming of the interschool fixtures. Bok Radio will keep the crowd entertained and the festival vibe going during the day until the live music programme kicks off early evening.
Gates open at 10am each day, to give festival-goers ample opportunity to find the perfect spot to revel in the music, relax on the sprawling lawns, enjoy the food and bars or just watch the rugby on the big screens with a cold one. With an extensive kids entertainment programme running during the day, Paarl Jam will offer something fun for everyone.
The organisers are offering a FREE Park and Ride shuttle service (route TBC) as part of their drink responsibly initiative and they have provided a dedicated drop-off and collect area for Ubers and taxis.
Ticket options are varied so that visitors can find their perfect festival fit – from single-day admission to weekend passes, family-friendly options and VIP experiences. Paarl Jam is a cashless festival, so festival-goers will need to buy credit before purchasing any food or drinks. Credit can be purchased with your ticket online or at the event.
