OppiKoppi 2011 - On our way
Now in its 17th year, the 2011 South African Oppi Koppi festival, which has previously been voted one of the top 10 festivals in the world by the British media, is one I have finally attended! Surviving the red dust and the bitter cold we made sure to fill up on tequila and lemon twist. The artists and bands ranged from hard core metal to jazz, blues, electro, zef hip hop, pop and rock. The Used took to stage the Sunday night… an hour late…. What happened to their sound I still wonder. Then followed Sum 41, a childhood band for the kids of the early 2000’s. whoo hoo!

As kids my sister and I pretended these power lines were dresses in our wardrobes.

Finally arrived after nearly 4hours! We set to prepare to set up our tent in the pitch black.
