THE OPPIKOPPI (article first published : 2004-04-13)

Easter weekends can be dreary and lots of people actually just do not know what to do with the extra time. The Oppikoppi “You check the level, the level is fine for me.” Easter Festival offers a slightly more intimate variation on the Bush, Braai’s and Tunes-theme and takes place from April 9 to 11. The organisers maintain that the Easter fest also represents “the most reputable way of fully preparing oneself mentally and physically for the onslaught planned around the 10th year celebrations of the OppiKoppi festival in August.”

Bands appearing are Dan Patlansky and the Mississippi Muthers, Jack Hammer, The Narrow, Valiant Swart, Albert Frost, Prime Circle, Akkedis, Ravis Regis and Louis Mhlanga, The Finkelstiens, Not my Dog, The Fake Leather Blues Band, Piet Planter, Laurie Lavine, Bomskok, Duck and Cover, Peepshow, Soil 7T7, Auriel’s Habit, Liela Groenewald, Stefan Dixon, Anika, Brixton Moord en Roof, Little Oblivion, Gordon’s Suitcase and Loose Cannon.

The Easter festival is planned as a deliberate form of rock ‘n roll escapism from city life for people who like tunes and sitting around thinking about things. Tickets R160 for the entire long weekend available at Computicket (R171 including the service charge) or at the gate at R160.
