Last week Saturday (the 11th of August 2012) I was at Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing (on the farm near Northam in the Limpopo province of South Africa). The whole weekend was a fun filled affair, chock-a-block full with dust, awesome tunes and 18,000+ awesome people.
After watching excellent acts like Vusi Mahlasela, Die Tuindwergies, Dance You’re On Fire, Yoav and Eagles of Death Metal (to name just a few) it was time for UK act Enter Shikari at Oppikoppi Sweet Thing. They made their appearance on the newly built Wesley’s Dome stage at 7 PM on the Saturday night.
Enter Shikari got the capacity crowd going in no time. They impressed me with their energetic stage presence and the way they interacted with the crowd. I must admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of them, but I’ll admit that Enter Shikari can definitely pull off an excellent live performance. And I’ll definitely give their tunes more of a listen in the near future.
I snapped these photos of Enter Shikari at Oppikoppi 2012 Sweet Thing, feel free to check them out:
