Project Description

Parow to Parow Fest: The Jack Parow Story

Since exploding onto the South African music scene with his smash hit “Cooler as ekke” in 2010, Jack Parow managed to achieve something very few other local artists have been able to do: to attract and maintain a following in The Netherlands and Belgium. 2017 saw him hosting his first own festival in The Netherlands – Parow Fest, a four-hour long extravaganza with some of the biggest Dutch hip hop and rap artists performing with Jack in a sold-out venue in Utrecht.

This film documents the path of Jack Parow (Zander Tyler), from growing up in the northern suburbs of Cape Town to the moment where he steps onto the stage at his own festival to thousands of screaming fans, more than 10 000 kilometres from home.
