Oppikoppi 18; Sweet Thing

 OppiKoppi is very proud and happy to announce that we will probably have 7 different stages in operation this year. Some stages are being broken down, new ones built, moved or expanded. We are hoping to feature more tunes, more genres but still keep a nice comfortable feel. Expect a few nice surprises… -Oppikoppi 18

Bullet For My Valentine Official Press Release From Oppikoppi.co.za:

You asked them and the Hilltop Live crew have heeded your call. Welsh Metal-core band, Bullet For My Valentine is making their South African debut at OppiKoppi 18 SweetThing!

Bullet for My Valentine comprises lead singer & rhythm guitarist Matthew Tuck, drummer Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas, lead guitarist & backing vocalist Michael ‘Padge’ Paget and bassist & backing vocalist Jason ‘Jay’ James. The group, named Best British Band in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by metal magazine Kerrang!, formed 10 years ago in their hometown of Bridgend as Jeff Killed John, covering Metallica and Nirvana songs. Citing Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer as influences they found their niche in 2002 on signing a five album deal with Sony BMG dropping The Poison in 2005, Scream Aim Fire in 2007 and Fever in 2010. With over one million albums in the United States and exceeding 2 500 000 worldwide sales, Bullet For My Valentine‘s debut for their South African fans has been a long time coming. Additional South African tour dates will be announced shortly.

Festival Safety tips from Oppikoppi.co.za:

- Is you is, or is you ain’t my baby: OppiKoppi is there for friends. Bring your own, or we will supply. Come hungry.

- He’s my dog and I love him: And if you want to see Stompie again after the festival we recommend leaving him at home. People braai almost anything marginally smaller than a Coleske brother at Oppikoppi. (One or two Lord of the Ring character doubling actors has had scary run-ins with the outer lying campsites at the festival in 2009.).

- Roekeloos: love that word. Tattoo it on your forehead or chest to win more friends at the festival.

- Blessed is he who travels with wet wipes, and warmly will he be received at any camp site. Especially with warm wet wipes.
