So, the moment many festival junkies, musical pilgrims and SA Music fans have all been waiting for is finally upon us! Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing kicks off on the farm near Northam tomorrow. If you haven’t given your liver a pep talk yet and you’re going, do it now!
Even though Oppikoppi is not new to me, the excitement I’m feeling simply can not be put into words. I will be making my way to the farm tonight for some well-deserved pre-festival drinks and good company from friends. I suppose you could say that it’s the calm before the storm. I hope to be up bright and early, armed with my camera, sunglasses and beer. I’m expecting a dust-filled tune-enhanced weekend from then on.
If you’re a regular reader of Running Wolf’s Rant and you’re looking to meet the man behind the screen at this year’s Oppikoppi festival, look out for the bald guy with the camera in one of the photo pits at Oppikoppi. Also, if you spot me in the top bar, buy me a beer or a Cuervo – it’s the right thing to do. I’ll be tweeting from my @hennokruger account and I will try to post regular photo updates on Instagram to keep you all in the loop.
Here’s just a final reminder before I leave for the festival later today:
