Join us on Sunday 4 August 2019 for another unforgettable day at Emmarentia Dam. Liefde By Die Dam, named after Valiant Swart’s famous hit song with the same name, showcases the best in local music. This is the perfect day out for all ages with a diverse line-up of acts, delicious food, a fully stocked bar and non-stop entertainment in a spectacular setting.

The 2019 line-up comprises of some of South Africa`s most successful and extraordinary artists and is sure to offer something special for every family member.

Die Heuwels Fantasties and Francois van Coke, rated as two of the most popular Afrikaans acts in our current SA Music landscape, had the Liefde by die Dam crowd on their feet last year and promises the same excitement at this year`s event. The rest of the super- eight line-up includes the multi award-winning songstress Tarryn Lamb; top of their game alternative rock band Spoegwolf, the legendary Coenie de Villiers and the world renowned, multiple Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir. Add to that the witty and groovy talents of Early B and Radio Raps and Liefde by die Dam 2019 is set to be a fantastic concert experience.

Coenie de Villiers says that he will be performing new renditions of some of his older classics. “I have talented young players in my band that bring new energy to these songs. Add to that the genius of guitarist Mauritz Lotz and we are set for some great fun on stage. There will also be a Led Zeppelin track in the mix!” 

Francois van Coke will be back on the Liefde by die Dam stage this year. “I am very privileged that my band and I have played at every LBDD so far. I’m going to play songs from my solo career, as well as some Fokofpolisiekar hits. There will also be collaborations with our friends Die Heuwels and Early B.”

Early B says that fans can get ready to “shake their biscuits” for his set. “It’s always exciting to be on a big stage like this. The reaction of a crowd this size to something that I wrote in a small room never seizes to amaze me.” 

Charlotte Kanter, Marketing Manager for Liefde by die Dam says that they are partnering with Bouwer Bosch and his Liefde Wen team again this year for the customary Liefde by die Dam blanket donations: “On 4 August, bring along a blanket to laze on whilst enjoying 8 hours of entertainment but leave it behind for a better cause! We will be donating all blankets to Liefde Wen so that they can keep the needy warm this winter! We collected more than 1000 blankets at last year`s event and we hope all of our 2019 attendees will get behind this worthwhile cause.”

The stage and premises at Emmarentia Dam are bigger for this year’s LBDD. Pierre Greeff of Die Heuwels Fantasties, who is also one of the organizers of the concert, says that the team is already working hard to provide an unforgettable concert experience. “There is a special charm to an outdoor venue. We have a lot of great music to share. Get ready, it’s going to be a huge party!”
