Oppikoppi is around the dusty corner, and it’s going to be kakmal. Are your friends briefed yet? Do they know you’re going to have a huge party? 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 Monkeys in Boots.

Monkeys in Boots are a 5 piece Folk Rock Band from Pretoria, South Africa. They consist of two Guitars, Bass, Drums, Violin, and Keyboard. With Luan Fourie on guitar, Fish Archer on Bass, Justin Snyman on drums, Fred on Violin and keys and Morne Erasmus on guitar, harmonica, Banjo and vocals.

How would you describe a Monkeys in Boots performance?

An energy filled show that will rock your boots off. We’re all about a good time and we’ll definitely bring that to you.

Do you have any tips for people wanting to get lucky in the bushveld?

Make sure your tent is erect before you are… Also, try your luck on the first night as it just gets dirtier from thereon forward.

If you could have one superpower for Oppikoppi, what would it be and why?

The power to turn dust into wine… or beer!

The Devil Makes Three. They achieve incredible substance through simplicity.

Which of the artists performing this year are you looking forward seeing? And why?

Kongos, Strait Jackal, Gerald Clark, The Oh So Serious, Albert Frost and mostly all of them… Why? Because it’s local and it’s lekker.

Lekker! Where is the best place at Oppikoppi to wind down, or have a few beer with the mates?

The Top Bar!!!

Coffee, or another beer when waking up at Oppikoppi? Explain.

We like to call it a stoute Broffie, ‘n brandewyn filled koppie koffie.
