Toyota SU Woordfees to exclusively broadcast on DStv

The 2021 Toyota SU Woordfees will take place all over South Africa and Namibia – exclusively on DStv. The Woordfees TV festival is scheduled for DStv channel 150 from 1 to 7 October 2021.

All DStv Premium and Compact Plus subscribers will have access to this pop-up channel. 

Saartjie Botha, festival director of the Toyota SU Woordfees is excited about this new concept: “Pop-up TV is a wonderful, safe way to stimulate, celebrate and share the performing arts. The Woordfees TV model makes it possible for us to keep our festival alive, create income opportunities for artists and exposure for our sponsors who have supported us with such tremendous trust and loyalty during the pandemic. We are very grateful for the generous contributions from Toyota, Stellenbosch University, kykNET, MultiChoice and Media24 without which this pop-up TV festival would not be possible.”

The Woordfees TV festival is scheduled for DStv channel 150 from 1 to 7 October 2021. Follow Woordfees social media platforms for new information about the TV festival.

The festival-TV programme will encompass most of the genres that would normally be part of this popular annual Stellenbosch festival: literature and writers’ discussions, drama, contemporary and classical music, stand-up comedy, lifestyle, debate, visual arts and dance. Selected performances will be repeated on the festival channel.

The programme content and broadcast times for Toyota SU Woordfees TV will be announced in the media on the 1st of September 2021. 

In collaboration with the Words Open Worlds (WOW) Project, the festival content will also include educational elements.

All narrative content and discussions will have English subtitles.
