Oppikoppi 20

Oppikoppi 2014 theme announced

Oppikoppi 2014 will be held from the 7th to the 9th of August, promises to be one of the musical highlights of the year and should not be missed if you are a fan of good music. Today the organizers of South Africa’s premium music festival, Hilltop Live, announced the theme for this year’s festival. It’s already commonly referred to by many as Oppikoppi 20 (since we are celebrating a double decade of festival awesomeness), but the official name for this year’s edition will be Oppikoppi  Odyssey.

Note 1: Have a look at the dates for the festival. You may have to take a day off, so start faking a disease almost immediately.

Note 2: In case you were wondering: The Odyssey concept was crafted by the AAA School of Advertising (in Cape Town). Really nifty gimmicks.

Note 3: The images for the campaign were designed by Louis Minnaar.

Note 4: Early bird ticket went on sale today.

General admission tickets cost R700 per person and includes an event t-shirt and camping for the weekend. This offer is available on the OppiKoppi Facebook page or on www.plankton.mobi. Tickets are selling like hot cakes, so move your arse.
