Lotsa Dust, Good Music & Hippies
They say you have to experience it for yourself to know how EPICLY AWESOME the three day festival known as OppiKoppi is! From a first-hand experience, I have to say…I’m definitely returning next year. With just about 20 000 people at attendance this year, this was apparently the biggest Oppi of all time.
Another cool thing, besides all the VW mini buses, are the tents people put up on various streets such as Oupa Fight, Fok Trappies, Lord Katar and DJ Bob. Each group/pair use tape to mark out their space, sometimes even flags with bras are hung as a landmark.
Most of all, one is advised at all times to keep a torch, lots of water (besides all the booze intake) and a backpack. If you get a good proper shower with warm water consider yourself a lucky dude, as for brushing teeth, the bush is all yours to spit in.
Picture this: Lots of hippies, chilled times, awesome performances from various local bands such as Fokofpolisiekar, Desmond & The Tutus, Flash Republic, Jack Parow and Bullet For My Valentine (international band).
On top of all that awesomeness, one can purchase cool memorable items with money loaded onto the OppiKoppi card.
