Hundreds of music fans and their favourite artists gathered in the bushveld this month for united toast to celebrate the 20th birthday of OppiKoppi, South Africa’s top annual alternative music festival.
Hosted at the central Wesley Dome on the festival grounds by the official beer sponsor of music festival, Windhoek Beer, each reveller had a beer in hand and raised a birthday toast to Oppikoppi amidst a sea of green beach balls, spurred on by the loud and proud MC, Catherine Grenfell.
“It was an amazing moment. We looked down at the crowd and everyone raised their glasses to 20 years of OppiKoppi, a festival that has really made an indelible impact on the SA music scene. It’s a wonderful festival and we’re proud to support it,” said Alan Roberts, Windhoek marketing manager at brandhouse.
MTV interviewed several artists on the Windhoek deck, with a majestic view over the festival grounds and rolling bushveld landscape. At the same deck Windhoek displayed a rare Fender Blacktop Stratocaster up for grabs, signed by the top artists at OppiKoppi.
Windhoek rewarded fans with 5000 free limited edition hoodies, 2 000 beanies and filled hungry bellies with 1400 burgers on the Windhoek deck where fans could spend time enjoying the spectacular views over the surrounding landscape.
