In March we saw Oppikoppi officially announce the theme for this years 22nd Koppi festival.
“Inspired by a Gert Vlok Nel tune, art photography by Daniel Naude and designed by the Breinstorm crew, in walks calendar girl number 22 in an annual series of loosely Rock ‘n Roll inspired bushveld get-to-gethers designed to get rid of your issues and inhibitions. And your problem boyfriends.
This is just a courtesy missive for the clan to say we are up and running.
For all the rest of you: OppiKoppi is where you go to make friends, whilst learning lots of personal lessons about dust, thorns, downhill, tequilas and yourself. With a friendly tune blanket almost everywhere you need.“
So what are the important details you need to know? Well, we will tell you.
When: 5, 6, 7 August.
Where: Northam. Limpopo 24°52’33.07″ S, 27°08’12.20″ E
Who: To date Hilltop Live, the people behind Oppikoppi, have put together XX acts to take stage, including 10 of SA’s best comedians.
Why: HA HA, this is a silly question. A weekend away from your “normal” life, filled with loads of music, friends, and new ones to be made, so WHY NOT?
Access: Normal tickets available here from R850. Available till 31 July. Late tickets R950 (1 August – 7 August) ticket sales
**For those who are more inclined to a little “luxury”, the tented hotel options are also available here.
One of my favourite things Koppi does is add little stuffs to make the weekend more fun. They call it “
FUCKME THAT’S A BONUS“. Think the annual Naked Run, no words needed here. The Couch Competition, make YOUR couch amazing, and you could watch your favourite band from any one of the stages. This year they have included early access to the farm from 3rd August, but only to those who go out and vote. No stain, no entry. And my favourite little extra, is “Bring Your Grandma” 😛 Anyone over 65 gets free access to Koppi and a shot of Cuervo at the Klein Bar. Valid I.D is a must, yes, they will be carded.
The most important thing to bring along to Koppi is a good attitude. And wet wipes, they are a send from heaven.
