    Default South Africa

    I know that this tread is probably in vain, but I am hoping to get some international support here I read an article in one of our local music magazines, which I thought that I would share.

    Oppikoppi ranks among top ten music fests

    Thursday, 10 April 2008 South Africa’s Oppikoppi music festival has been ranked fourth in the UK Daily Mirror’s list of the Top Ten Music Festivals taking place outside the mainland Britain. “Like Glastonbury, only hotter,” says the Daily Mirror.co.uk in describing the now 15 year old festival which sees ‘home-grown bands and DJ’s rub shoulders with European talent under the expansive African sky.” Ranking ahead of Oppikoppi in the top three spots are the Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium, Benicassim in Spain and Fuji Rocks which is held in the valley of Mount Fuji in Japan. The Oppikoppi headline festival which takes place every August on the official OppiKoppi farm in Northam, Limpopo Province will be turning fifteen this year. This year’s festival will take place from the 7th to the 10th August. The full list of the top ten foreign music festivals as determined by the Daily Mirror is:

    1. Pukkelpop – Belgium
    2. Benicassim – Spain
    3. Fuji Rocks – Japan
    4. Oppikoppi – South Africa
    5. Bestival – UK
    6. Airwaves – Iceland
    7. Rock Werchter – Germany
    8. The Electric Picnic – Ireland
    9. The Big Day Out – New Zealand
    10. The Montreux Jazz Festival – Switzerland
    So, if we rank so high on the list, there is really no excuse for The Offspring not to come to South Africa, plus there is a gap in the tour schedule between the USA and Europe to make a pit stop here

    Oppikoppi actually means 'On Top Of The Hill' in Afrikaans, but I do get where you are coming from

    I'm totally in favor of this! I think the name alone would entice them. It's extremely short notice, but I'm sure stranger things have happened!
