Oppikoppi is almost here, and it’s going to be a moerse party! Are you prepared? Are you ready for a stof-jol? And do you have your tickets yet? If not, click here. With that said, we’re asking Oppikoppi artists 7 kief questions about the festival and even asking for a few hints and tips for first-timers. We had a chat with Matthieu Auriacombe from Hello Beautiful.

What’s the one thing you will never forget to bring to Oppikoppi, other than instruments?

Bacon, pan, gas braai, and my Brother Johan, cause he is making the breakfast.

What’s the most random question you’ve ever been asked at Oppikoppi?

“Hey, do you have shoes I can borrow, cause I didn’t bring any?” True story

Do you have any advice for people who are attending the festival for the first time?

Make sure you have reminders on your phone for when and where your favourite bands are playing, cause without that, you will miss them.

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

To have Johan’s famous Oppikoppi breakfast just appear in front of my face whenever I want it.

What has been your fondest memory of Oppikoppi?

Playing with Kidofdoom a few years back, and watching our guitarist Wim out party himself before we even got to Oppikoppi.

What’s the first thing you’re going to do when you arrive at Northam’s gem, Oppikoppi?

Have a cold one with the boys. Hahaha!

What would be your plan to survive the dusty outskirts of Mordor/District 9 for the weekend?

Bring my whole bed to the campsite with a huge tent, and Whiskey, lots of Whiskey, and of course, Johan’s famous breakfast.

We would like to thank Matthieu for his time. Be sure to check them out when they makietie at Oppikopp!
