Oppikoppi is volgende naweek! Fok ja! Do you have your tent sparkly clean and have you packed an extra liver? 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 Strait-Jackal.

Strait-Jackal emerged from the streets and mullets of Benoni in the winter of 2013, they formed with a clear and precise goal in mind, to FUNK ! 
They achieve this by using a unique blend of hitting drums, fingering and plucking guitars, bitch slapping bass guitar and running their mouths off into microphones

What has been your fondest memory of Oppikoppi?

Jamming with Albert Frost on the way to Oppi in a hippy van and setting up a double decker couch at the main stage and partying above a sea of people whilst awesome bands played.

If you had no choice but to participate in the naked mile this year, what would your fool-proof plan consist of for winning the event?

Teamwork ! Josh will be handing out free laxative dosed water, Casey will serve as moral support for Craig “Brown Lightning” Chetty who is easily our fastest runner and if that still doesn’t work, Clark will be strategically placed Paintball gun in hand.


How would you guys deal with the Oppikoppi pre-show jitters?

There will definitely be Jose Cuervo involved. We might even have to watch Shia LaBeouf’s “Just Do It” video.

Have you ever picked up any injuries at Oppikoppi? If so, mind telling us what happened?

One of the worst was probably a bad case of thorn in foot luckily josh to keep the foot, but other than that just irreversible liver damage and varying degrees of red lung.

If you could describe Oppikoppi in one song excerpt, what would it be?

“Lekker Lekker Dans” – Tidal Waves

How would you prevent the Red Sea in your nose at Oppikoppi?

You can never go wrong with an Oppi buff.

What’s the craziest thing that has ever happened to you at Oppikoppi?

Having our brains melted by BCUC and Tatran.

We would like to thank Strait-Jackal for their time! As jy hulle gaan sien (jy moet) by Oppikoppi, maak seker jy skud jou kop saam!
