Oppikoppi 2014 is less than a month away and excitement is reaching enormous proportions for what promises to be one of the music festival highlights of the year on the SA Music calendar. Tickets for the festival (which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year) are selling like hot cakes and many a music fan is selling their souls (or anything they can find) to make sure that they attend what will be one of the biggest jols of the year.
To increase excitement for Oppikoppi 2014, Deezer (my favorite tool for listening to and discovering new music online) recently published a playlist featuring some of amazing artists that will be performing this year. The playlist features a few songs by the international acts on the line-up: Wolfmother (Australia), Editors (UK), Rival Sons (USA), Cat Power (USA) and Willy Mason (USA). Local acts on this year’s line-up are not ignored. Tracks by Bittereinder, Van Coke Kartel, Christian Tiger School, Taxi Violence and other brilliant SA artist are featured on the 25 track playlist compiled by Deezer South Africa, Tecla Ciolfi.
