Francois van Coke on stage @ Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing


On Friday night at Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing Fokofpolisiekar was the last act to perform of the day. The pulled a capacity crowd at the newly built Wesley’s Dome stage. Francois van Coke and the boys really know how to do this.

There must have been close to 20,000 people in front of the stage before Fokofpolisiekar started playing. These Afrikaans Belville rockers amazed the crowd with one of the best live shows they’ve played in their entire history as a band. I was particularly amazed by the amount of old songs they played during their set. Another highlight was seeing Seether frontman Shaun Morgan on stage with Francois van Coke when they played “Skyn Heilig”.

Watching Fokofpolisiekar playing at Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing was definitely one of the highlights of the festival for me. They interacted brilliantly with the crowd and I’ve never heard a crowd singing along so loudly at an Oppikoppi festival before. I snapped this close up photo of Francois Van Coke on the stage during Fokofpolisiekar’s set and it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 4th of September 2012.
