Four artists you can’t miss at Oppikoppi Nomakanjani

The Oppikoppi 2018 lineup is looking stellar so far, and it’s definitely understandable that some festivalgoers might be overwhelmed by the variety of noteworthy artists playing at the festival this year. Luckily, the Koppi veterans here at Artwolf Media have compiled a short, handy list of must-see acts! The festival takes place from 9-11 August In Northam, Limpopo.

Van Pletzen

This good-natured, satirical duo will almost certainly lift your spirits at this year’s Koppi! Their music is pure escapism, and their videos are hilarious to watch. Watch this space for an interview with the band!


Honestly, a Koppi experience is nver complete without seeing Fokof if they’re on the lineup. Their sets are always electric and they have proven time and again that they are one of South Africa’s top rock acts, especially live.

The Sun Xa Experiment

An enigmatic group that simply has to be experienced live in order to understand their full musical glory. This group is a sight to behold and they will almost certainly make your Koppi experience that much more memorable.
