Fatboy Slim in South Africa in December 2007

Superstar DJ and big-beat master Fatboy Slim is headed to South Africa in December 2007 with a box of records that he’ll be spinning in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The man born Norman Cook — behind hits like ‘Praise You’ and ‘The Rockafeller Skank’ — will be in the country courtesy of the “Coaching for Hope” initiative. The charity uses football to empower young people in the developing world by making them aware of the dangers of HIV and Aids.

Already active in Mali and Burkina Faso, “Coaching for Hope” is expanding its programme to South Africa ahead of the 2010 World Cup and Cook’s visit coincides with International World Aids Day on 1 December.
