Punk Prom Y2K

Sat Dec 16, 20:00 - Sun Dec 17, 04:00

Evol Nightclub



One of the biggest alternative parties in Cape Town has returned for a sequel!

Freaks, geeks, queers, goths, weirdos and edgelords rejoice!

If you're reading this, you're probably the kind of person who... didn't have a fun time at their matric dance.... and you've probably thought about what it would've been like, if it was a safe, open-minded space where your weirdness was celebrated and you could rock out all night with your besties to sick music.

Well, here's your chance to have your iconic punk prom moment!

Punk Prom will be hosted once more by AMANDA PRESSED, Cape Town's beardiest drag queen

DJ STEAK aka the Diabolical Electric Eel is a known-veteran punk enthusiast and will get us banging heads and warmed up for the 3 bands that feature.

Live music by your favourite punk band CISTAMATIC, supported by Durban's very own POSTER BOY and rampaging from Joburg's scene LEFOKOLODI*,


After the bands we'll keep the party going with your favourite 2000's alt anthems!

We will also be crowning PROM ROYALTY for the three best-dressed punks in the house, as well as running a prom photo booth so that you too can have the cringe prom photos of your dreams.

And obviously, it's at the home of counterculture in Cape Town, the legendary EVOL. We'll be dressing her up a little for the occasion too. So get your toy flip phones, steal your Dad's cycling glasses, put on some messy eyeliner and dress your hair with some liberty spikes! DON'T HOLD BACK.


Break out your matric dance dress and cover it in safety pins or wear your dad's suit or come naked covered in glitter. We don't care. This is Punk Prom. However you want to interpret the theme is up to you, just remember we will be giving some special prizes to the most iconic looks of the evening <3 FOR POINTERS, we will be having small hampers to amp your Y2K look - all we really want is to look like we're in an Avril Lavigne music video.

Bring your friends for a mosh and cute matric dance, bring your lover to make out with in the bathrooms, or just come by yourself and meet some radical like-minded people!

There are no rules except the GUIDING PRINCIPLE OF PUNK, which is radical acceptance, kindness and respect for all human beings and a strong intolerance for anyone trying to fuck with that. Anyone, no matter what your gender, race, sexuality, music taste, whatever, is welcome in the punk community.

PUNK PROM is for everybody who wants to be part of it. Just dress up, show up and let's DANCE!
