Kom nou mense, the Heavy Rock awaits at Oppikoppi 2018 – #OK24Nomakanjani


Sanibonani to all you late bloomers, final additions, last minute bookings and procrastinators of note

Remember this: Nothing is sacred and you are always welkom at OppiKoppi, Nomakanjani. There are visionaries who went to sleep with HeaRocks on their chests to bring you this festival of notes, so please, abajitha, stop chasing shambolically tattoo’d 68 mumblers and other suspicious flash-in-the-pan characters. You see, you are just not where she sees herself right now. You are trying too hard and coming across as desperate. Woza, my friend, come dance to some Heavy Rock and let us regale you and jog your memory, because if you can remember last year’s festival, you weren’t there.

The phrase “Are you going to Oppi?” is solicited on unsuspecting carousers throughout Azania every year at this time. “Dis KOPPI, nie blerrie OPPI nie!” Exclaimed one ageing Jazz Wolmer. Believe it, because fishing for a good time starts with throwing in the line. Get that ticket and book the magic bus. We have primed a place at the dust counter for you, and the once chaotic Heavy Rock festival has been condensed into a power packed varied musical onslaught for your aural gratification.

Baudelaire: The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs. In case you did not know, OppiKoppi is a cashless environment. Your entrance armband now has a chip in it, so you won’t need the one on your shoulder. And yes, you can shower with the armband (Chip ‘n Dip).

Also, there are apps for locating your friends, apps for finding that Heavy Rock band on the lineup, a festival map and more. Download/update your official OppiKoppi Festival app today:

About the author

Geniene Preston

I have travelled the world – almost 82 countries and has been in publishing since 2003. Before that I was an IT Project manager for over 20 years and woke up one day to the realisation that actually all I wanted to do was write. So I started my first magazine Style in IT which was, in essence, a newsletter. But I loved it and I started my own mouthpiece SA Commuter. I re-invented myself once Smart phones became popular and learnt Social Media so that I could be a pro at Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Now I could have fun instantly! My world has grown and includes reviews and with over 49000 followers on Trip Advisor I am in the top 1% of reviewers in South Africa. I am a true South African and a love of Johannesburg has kept me here since 1981. My stories are real and I love people and history! Now I publish Anytime Magazine in print and online as well as my blog, sacommuter.com
