Toyota US Woordfees | Aansoeke

The 2021 Toyota SU Woordfees will take place all over South Africa and Namibia – on TV. From 1 – 7 October 2021 you will be able to experience Woordfees TV on DStv channel 198. All DStv Premium and Compact Plus subscribers will have access to this pop-up channel.

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

The programme is being compiled specifically for TV. Participation, therefore, will be primarily by invitation. However, artists who have recently produced suitable work that meets the technical requirements for broadcast, will have the opportunity to present their work for inclusion in the programme.
