Oppikoppi 2017: The Good, The Bad and Then Some Mangoes


Heads up for a big bite of info around the Oppikoppi 2017 edition. Sometimes big mangoes take a little time to ripen. In the background, the organizers were working on one more key headliner for this year’s festival. The bad news is that this will not work out for this year and can only be picked in 2018. Sorry about that guys and girls.

So that was the bad news. The good news is that this allows the organizers to bring down the ticket price considerably for this year’s edition. The full weekend ticket price was R900, this will now be brought down to R749 for the full weekend. The organizers are also introducing day tickets for the Friday and the Saturday for only R400 per day. This is a super cost effective 3-day tune driven break away.

Normal price tickets sold already: If you have bought a full price ticket already we will send you a cashless voucher for the difference that can be used at the festival.

Please note: Full weekend tickets cannot be exchanged for day tickets, only for the reduced weekend ticket. These reduced-price tickets are available for August and September only. If still available, tickets will be sold at the gate for R900, but we highly recommend that you don’t take any chances on that.

All prices exclude ticket fees. These tickets are only on sale whilst stocks last. Full is full. And dust is dust. The new ticket prices will also be applicable on the budget mango ticket, pay 50% before end of August and the balance in September. This option will only be available until 31 Aug. Admin charges on the cashless reimbursement will be deducted.
Tickets available at plankton.mobi.

You might be asking yourself these questions:

“I bought a R900 ticket, what now?” plankton.mobi will email you the balance as a cashless voucher. Please note: this will have an admin cost of R18.

“I already have an Oppikoppi Mango Picker cashless card, do I need to get another one? Will the R18 card fee apply to me?” If you already have an Oppikoppi Mango Picker cashless card please present yourself and your reimbursement ticket to the festival bank and you will be assisted. Please note the ad min fee will be R6 and not R18 in this instance.

“I bought a R900 ticket, can I exchange it for a day ticket and get the balance in cashless vouchers?” Old weekend tickets can only be exchanged for the new weekend passes.

“Can I refund my ticket and buy a new one?” Please refer to the refund policy on plankton.mobi at this link.

“Is there a day ticket for Thursday?” Nope,only for Friday and Saturday.

“Does the day ticket include camping?” Yes, you will have access to the campsite for either the Friday or Saturday night and will be required to leave the farm the following day.

“Can I book into a hotel with a day ticket?” Please keep an eye on the various hotel pages (Kreef, Harambee, Klein Windhoek, Cycad) for possible deals and packages they may make available.

“Can I buy a ticket at the gate?” Rather buy online. At this stage there are no day tickets listed to be sold at the gates.
