CityPress - - Voices - Pic­tured) – Grethe Koen and Binwe Ade­bayo

Not only is this year’s Op­pikoppi theme, The Fan­tas­tic Mr VosVos, partly inspired by the Roald Dahl book Fan­tas­tic Mr Fox, but the fes­ti­val will fea­ture some­thing new – po­etry free-for-all nights ev­ery night.

“Watch po­ets, MCs and mu­sos turn spo­ken words into wine, and im­promptu po­ems into songs and freestyle hip-hop tracks at the #PoetryFreeForAll ev­ery evening at the Top Bar,” say fes­ti­val or­gan­is­ers.

Po­ets such as Churchil Naudé, Danie Marais, Adrian van Wyk, Pi­eter Oden­daal, Erns Grundling, Lof­tus Marais, An­dries Bezuiden­hout and other spe­cial guests will en­ter­tain rev­ellers. No won­der Op­pikoppi is still con­sid­ered South Africa’s best mu­sic fes­ti­val.
