Well, it’s hard to believe but it’s true. That dirty, dusty… thirsty celebration of South African music – the Oppikoppi festival – is 20 years old!
This weekend sees a massive celebration to mark the occasion. Unfortunately like many other South African music lovers around the world, we aren’t able to make it, so we thought we’d do the next best thing and devote an whole episode of Tune Me What? to some highlights recorded at Oppikoppi by a host of artists who have graced the stage there.
So please join us for an hour of great music and raise a glass of something cold to the amazing, unstoppable, brilliant festival of South African Music!
Happy birthday Oppikoppi! Long may you make a helluva lawaai in the bush!
In this show we feature the music of:
- Battery 9
- Joshua Grierson
- Koos Kombuis
- Pressure Cookies
