Steelband Festival



The Cape Town Steelband Festival is a joint venture between the Cape Town Big Band Jazz Festival and the Steelband Project.

The Steelband Project (Western Cape) was set up in 1997 by Liz Brouckaert and David Wickham.  The core focus of the project is to provide quality music education to young people, with a particular focus on youth in under-resourced communities and “youth-at-risk”.  The project is active in many suburban, township and rural areas.  There are currently 16 steelbands being taught by the Steelband Project on a weekly basis, with an average size of 15 members.  The Wynberg bands, although originally taught by the Steelband Project are now entirely independent and are currently taught by 
Justin Biggs.

Wynberg Boys’ High, Queen’s College Primary (Eastern Cape), Heideveld High, Heideveld Primary, Woodlands Primary, Ned Doman High, Riebeek Kasteel, Camps Bay Primary, Herzlia Primary (Constantia), Elkana Childcare (Malmesbury), Muizenberg Primary School
