Fokofpolisiekar on stage @ Oppikoppi Wired 2005


In 2005 I made my way to Oppikoppi Wired. It was one of the most memorable festival experiences that I’ve ever had. Besides enjoying performances by the likes of Valiant Swart, Jack Hammer, Prime Circle, Karen Zoid, Matthew van der Want, The Narrow and others it was also special because I saw Fokofpolisiekar performing twice in 1 day. Their first performance of the day was an acoustic set at the stage usually reserved for the DJs. Their 2nd set was a loud one on the main stage. Both sets were absolutely amazing. We were at the festival from the Friday to the Tuesday, making it the longest period that I’ve ever spent on the farm near Northam in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. I snapped this photo of Fokofpolisiekar while they were playing their acoustic set on that weekend and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 24th of June 2011.

Yesterday a photo featuring a Cape Winelands Scene was the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant. Watch this space for daily updates in the Daily Babes section and this section.
