OPPIKOPPI MUSIC FESTIVAL (article first published : 2003-07-27)

The OppiKoppi Hond uit ‘n Box Festival has come round again and takes place this year from August 8 to 10 on the OppiKoppi farm in Northam in the Northern Province.

The focus of this year’s festival leans more on rock, punk, blues, folk and pop bands with a sprinkling of comedy acts and a few dj’s thrown in for good measure. Die-hard fans who have followed the festival from its infancy on the farm in 1995 to a 15,000 strong audience in 2000, can now return to the much loved bushveld venue.

OppiKoppi’s other festival at Fountains Valley in Pretoria (Tshwane) takes place at the end of November and will differ significantly in lineup, concentrating more on progressive live acts, dj’s, Urban dance styles, Kwaito and Hip Hop bands.

As per usual, the “Hond uit ‘n Box” Festival on the farm will have fleamarket, food stalls and plenty of entertainment over multiple stages.

The weather in the Northern Province is mild to warm over the August period. The days are sunny and hot, and the nights are cool but not cold.

Tickets range from R220 to R250. Phone 012 460 7431 or e-mail info@oppikoppi.co.za or visit www.oppikoppi.co.za for updates. Band bookings on e-mail: bob@oppikoppi.co.za and crafters wanting flea market information should phone 072 198 4086 or email: tes@oppikoppi.co.za
