In August 2010 I attended Oppikoppi. Sexy. Crooked. Teeth (near Northam) in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. It was one of the most memorable Oppikoppi festivals out of the 12 that I’ve ever attended over the years. Besides attending my first ever #TweetUp at the festival and meeting @wasbeer @PsychoButterfly and @sparklez23 there were also legendary performances by Billy Talent, The Narrow, Wrestlerish, Fire Through the Window, Dance You’re On Fire, Die Tuindwergies, Van Coke Kartel, Jack Parow, Albert Frost and Vusi Mahlasela, Straatligkinders and various other artists. I can’t wait for this year’s festival in August. At the moment I’m psyched up for the Where BLUES Meets Rock festival in Bronkhorstspruit next weekend and for RAMFest 2011 in Worcester the weekend after that. This is not putting a damp on my excitement for Oppikoppi though. I snapped this photo of the crowd walking between the main stage and the acoustic stage at Oppikoppi last year. It has been been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 18th of February 2011.
Yesterday a photo of Van Coke Kartel on stage @ Hatfield Carnival was the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant.
