Oppikoppi Odyssey 2014

Oppikoppi 2014 by Louis Gee

Not just anyone can go to Oppikoppi. You have to REALLY love music to want to be there and endure the 3 days of dust and partying.

The line-up this year promised to create a few highlights in many people’s lives with headliners Aloe black, Editors and Wolf Mother.

It was great to see so many vibrant souls in the campsites and definite camaraderie between the newer Oppikoppi generation and the veterans. We all have something to learn from each other, whether it’s the fact that you’re too old to party that hard or too young to remember to shower and buy extra cigarettes.

I had the pleasure of seeing some of my favorite artists, namely Spoek Mathambo, Nomadic Orchestra, Sibot and Toyota, Mr. Sakitumi, Louie Lvnd, Lex la Foy and (new found appreciation for) CT legends Dookoom. With every stage hosting some great bands is was tough running between all the different gigs and trying fit everyone in.

Some fun Oppikoppi facts
1. It was their 20 year anniversary so you can only imagine how people celebrated and revelled in the dustathon.
2. The Red Bull stage was the biggest rave Limpopo has ever experienced.
3. DJ Bob played every night, and the most legendary set.
4. Dookoom Salute! Breakfast with these guys was something special, and camping next to Isaac Mutant was an education.
5. The showers in media where decent.
6. There was the one place we ate and it blew my mind. I’d go back to Oppikoppi next year just to eat there again.
7. Always take an extra multi plug for the media centre.
8. The Running of the Gods was participated in with enthusiasm, but
9. The naked race took the cake – brave souls of Mordor.
10. People didn’t shout Oppikoppi as much this year. In fact, there was a lot less shouting and way more listening in my opinion.
11. The Oppikoppi team work damn hard to make the festival incredible for you so say thank you!
12. It was a contest for the best branded buffs; MTV, MK and Red Bull vying for the spot.

Thanks to Revolution and Hilltop for having us. Still finding dust in my ears.
