Oppikoppi is amper hier! Is jy al reg vir dit? Have you cleaned your tent since the last Oppikoppi? Het jy al jou ma vir sakgeld gevra? And do you have your tickets yet? If not, click here. With that said, we’re asking Oppikoppi artists 7 questions about the festival and a few other random questions that you would like to know. We had a chat with the impressive Bittereinder.

Al wat ons kan sê oor hulle musiek… Dit klink soos rap maar dit voel soos Afrikaans.

What’s the one thing that’s always first in your bag when packing for Oppikoppi?

A dustbuster. Kidding. A mic.

If you could be one superhero at Oppikoppi, who would you be? And why?

Flash. So I could get to all the stages in time to catch all the artists I’d like to see. Always a crazy rush and sacrifice to tear yourself away from somewhere and try and see all the acts circled on the lineup, but that’s totally part of the big festival experience.



Can we expect a few insane collaborations on stage this year from Bittereinder?

Of course! Without giving too much away, expect an absurd fusion of brass and comedy.

Yes! How would you explain to someone to difference between Kreef and Mordor?

Kreef: a semblance of pretence that everything is going to be OK. Mordor: all-in.

Where’s the best place at Oppikoppi to take a “time out?”

The top bar, probably. But there’s no such thing as a time-out at Oppikoppi.

What has so far been the highlight of Bittereinder in your musical career?

The 2013 Oppikoppi set on the Wesley Dome has to be right up there, playing Lowlands Festival in Holland was also epic, winning two SAMAs probably also qualify as career highlights.

Definitely. Who is the best Oppikoppi-wingman you’ve ever had? And why was he/she so good?

I’d say Peach was a pretty good wingman for Louis in 2014 when things went a little pear-shaped after the show. No further details shall be disclosed at this stage. HemelBesem was also a tower of strength and know-how in the aforementioned pear-situation.

We would like to thank Bittereinder vir hulle tyd! Maak seker dat jy hulle nie misloop as hulle Oppikoppi aan die brand rap nie!
