I had the time of life this past weekend at the awesomest music festival in SA, Oppikoppi!
This year’s theme was Bewilderbeast, and trust me when I say that people were party beasts at this year’s festival, which is took place in Northam, Limpopo from the 8th to the 10th of August.
What I love the most about Oppi, besides the awesome bands I get to see, is the camping experience with my friends. I love the fact that I get to leave the big city of Joburg for a couple of days to go camping at a farm filled with crazy music lovers, whacky and weird hippies hugging trees as well as good conversation and lots of laughter with my buddies.
I loved the performances by Deftones, Bittereinder and Pascal & Pearce. I jammed so hard that my feet are still aching a day after the festival ended, and my voice is still at the Oppi farm because I screamed my lungs while the performances were on. So to the organizers of Oppi, if you find my voice-box at the farm, could you kindly return it to me via email or post please? Thanks.
Anyway, if you’re a music festival lover and you’re looking for a good jam and a mid-year, long weekend getaway, Oppikoppi is the place to be.
Here are a couple of pics to show you the absolute fun I had at Oppi:
Oppikoppi was fantastic, and best believe that I’ll be back next year!
And I’ll complete this post by screaming out ‘OPPPPPIIIIIII!!!’
