One of South Africa’s biggest multi-day music festival, OppiKoppi is coming up, and as any festival veteran will tell you it’s essential to get yourself Oppi ready beforehand.
While your survival pack should include a strong flashlight, sunscreen, a bandana mouth/nose guard against the dust and a great pair of plastic wellies for when the dust turns to mud, the key ingredient to a great weekend is assembling your top squad to share in the fun.
For most of the 20 000 strong crowd the journey to Oppi is based on how quickly you can get there and get the party started. This time round turn your Oppi drive into a scenic road trip by journeying through one of the country’s best road trips routes – the Valley Route – and start the Oppi experience as soon as you get on the road.
Start off your journey by creating a Spotify playlist, featuring some of the OppiKoppi Nomakanjani 2018 line-up, gearing up for what’s ahead.
With multi stages during the 3-day festival, the best part of Oppi is the range of musical talent available, with something for everyone. From favourites to discovering new artists, the 2018 line-up includes award winning rapper Kwesta, legendary rock band Wonderboom, electronic music sensation GoodLuck, alternate Afrikaans rock band, Fokofpolisiekar, skater kid turned electronic music producer Muzi and more including the 2018 tribute artist, iconic Zimbabwean human right activist and musician extraordinaire, Oliver Mtukudzi.
