After a 16 month break, the band has decided to give their fans one final tour before they take their final bow. The final performance will feature a Kartel reunion with Jason Oosthuizen; an old drummer of the band, to complete the line-up.

Van Coke Kartel will take to the stage at 11pm, however be sure to arrive earlier to catch the deep sounds of Sweet Resistance and the epic tracks from Retro Dizzy. They’ll get your body ready to rock for Van Coke Kartel’s performance. Expect great drink prices and a great vibe at Mercury Live.
