OPPIKOPPI - FOR THE LOVELY YOUNG TAKEN TO THE UNSEA
The first ever band weekend at the OppiKoppi farm took place in May 1994 – 23 years ago! This makes the 2016 edition the 22nd main August festival episode (There were also several smaller supremely inelegant weekend events). Having started in the small bar to around four hundred people with Valiant and Koos, no one realised that this was just the tip of the icebox.
OppiKoppi now hosts 7 fixed stages (and a few roving pieces of craziness), roughly 160 sets of music and entertainment, 20 000 rabid fans and more bed nights in the hotels than all of Sun City. (Trust in the tunes, they said. And it worked).
So for all the fans and members of the extended OppiKoppi family a massive thank you for shaping this tune driven movement with us. Also have a look and please submit some of your photos and memories in celebration of this annual South African tune migration to firstname.lastname@example.org
