Oppikoppi Ticket Giveaway

oppikoppi

OppiKoppi is HARD. You party hard, you sleep hard and you friend hard. The more Koppi’s you attend, the more you begin to understand how having (or not having) a few essential items can make or break your festival experience. Wet wipes, fire-lighters, and a 5L water bottle are examples of such items. These are the things that keep you going so that you can go on to be one with the Koppi voodoo.

To honour all of the veteran dust walkers who’ve walked the dusty plains for long enough to have their Oppikoppi checklist recipe right, we’re giving away 2 sets of double tickets to South Africa’s favourite festival!

    A camel pack boiiiiiii! Literally you haven’t lived until you have a hands-free booze carrying solution. Plus it makes your back sweat like crazy so you could even lose a little weight! I know, I’ve changed your lives, you’re welcome.

    Myself..From kak to Kak Lekker!!

    Stoute stukkie DANGERTAPE! Either vir jou kampplek afbaken of om jou tjomma mee vas te bind vir die naked mile!

    My drinking buddy.
    (Who is also, secondarily, my boyfriend)

    My hangover mitigator and down-down cheerleader (those two may be connected). The absolute gees-generaal. My experienced festival guru. My Gandalf the Cray that lead me to my first experience in Whore-dor (Daisies), and it’s been uphill ever since.

    So, no matter the bits and bobs in my Mary Jane Poppins bag (c’mon, a spoonful of sunscreen saves lives) — My OppiKoppi experience will always be one person away from perfect.

    While my own Koppi Kaartjie and flight tickets are already booked for the Cape to Koppi pilgrimage, my underground music dealer is still chipping away at his university fees.
    But be there, he must. Nomakanjani.

  6. A comfy chair

  7. Clean underwear !☆

    Lots and lots of Windhoek😉
    Two cases gets me a brand new hoodie, ’cause I’ll probz forget a jacket. So it’s a win win.

  9. Die een onderbroek wat jy gaan dra.

    For all the Troopers:
    My Portable Radio
    So I can grind through the day with tunes by my side whenever a vibe is needed to get it all started!

  11. I’m gonna have to go with the absolute basics – tent and tickets! Good luck surviving Mordor without either

  12. Wet wipes for a refreshing koppi-shower! 8)

  13. Earplugs for when you really need some sleep.

  14. Rose. – Our stuffed pink unicorn mounted to a long stukkie hout! She is our crowd beacon!

  15. Wetwipes man!

    Get a fresh’ish start without the shower lines.

  16. You only need one thing. A Katja. She has been to all 11 I have been to and everytime I get her to top bar, it’s kak lekker.

    Also a spade.

  17. Chani Hamman : June 5, 2018 at 12:26 pm

    Number one thing to pack is your OPPI TICKET! without that it will remain kak. Without that your personality, charm and jokes will only get you to the entrance of the Dustbowl aka Mordor where all your hopes and dreams aren’t a priority…..

  18. Ivan Kruger : June 5, 2018 at 12:37 pm

    An inflatable Donald Trump

  19. A partner.

    Everything will always be that much better with a buddy. You need someone to get you into trouble and that someone that will help get you out of it. A friend that knows what happens at Oppi stays at Oppi. A side kick that will keep your ass going even when your motivation might be down. A comrade that will push you until you’re broken dying in the dust but will make sure you get back home to mom, because they don’t want to be the one to explain what happened to you.

    Really all you need is someone to share the memories with.

  20. Fok bra, ‘n kaartjie. Can’t Koppi without a kaartjie.

  21. Tazzmin Govender : June 5, 2018 at 1:39 pm

    Gotta have dem wet wipes.

  22. Thys Kukkuk : June 5, 2018 at 1:59 pm

    Kyk dinge staan so. If you party hard, sleep hard and drink hard there is little time to make some lekker chow so take some protien bars, energy bars or some of those breakfast bars with you. Who knows, maybe this time you won’t starve cause you drank away all your money and forgot where your tent was?

  23. Robyn Kelly : June 5, 2018 at 2:28 pm

    Duct tape!
    Ripped your shorts? Duct tape.
    Keep losing your bottle? Duct tape.
    Loudmouth friend? Duct tape.
    Broken your stretcher? Duct tape
    Hole in your mattress? Duct tape.

    From kak… to kak lekker. One duct tape roll at a time.

  24. Celeste Everitt : June 5, 2018 at 3:21 pm

    From Kak to Kak Lekker:

    Definitely my she-wee, so I don’t have to sit on portaloos; secondly my buff, to breathe safely in the portaloos (and everywhere else) and; thirdly my headlamp, so I can see hands-free in the portaloos. 😀 😀 😀 I wee a lot.

  25. Koppie is eerlikwaar kakker as jy op die vloer moet slaap elke aand.
    Gaan van kak to kak lekker nagrus en koop vir jou n 12v pomp (sommer by checkers). Twee dinge is waar, mens kan nie n airbed manually op pomp as jy dronk is nie, en mens kan nie n airbed manually oppomp met n hangover nie.
    Doen dit.

  26. Gumboots, want regtig daai dorings steek, en nie n lekker steek nie..

  27. Sune Jordan : June 5, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    As lekker as it is donating your dad’s camp chair named “Kom terug” to the Boom God (and I’m not referring to your mate with the 30cm joint in his mouth here) because you’ve either spewed your jagertainted guts over it or batista bombed it into the 7th circle of hell, I’d say manners, oppiquet. Though our annual sacrificial donations are something I get highly aroused by, some of the fellow mordorians don’t understand the number one rule of moenie n poes wees nie. Almal van ons wynkonyne en slaai pappegaaie is daar vir n fokken good time. Be a mate – nomakanjani

  28. Rynette Barnard : June 6, 2018 at 9:29 am

    Verseker my party belt. Eks known to be a runner en Koppi is die kak lekkerste as jy kan hardloop en saam almal party, as jy jou light, rollies, paar wet wipes, zambak, tjeppies en Koppi Kaart om jou heupe het. Dan is my lyf vry vir skud en my hande vry vir drink. Sal nie Koppi kan indink sonder hom nie.

  29. Drinking bottle!
    There’s no glass allowed in the festival area so the best way to make sure you stay hydrated with your favourite spirit is a lekker 2l drinking bottle 🤘

  30. Duard Burger : June 6, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    Before we can get to that one thing you need to remember, you need to remember to remind yourself that the occurrence of remembering does not entail the art of the member to the mind as much as it does the remembering of the minds member. Hê n Jol, druk n drol, and remember that wit goud.

    As Confucius said: “n Lekker kak is Lekker, maar kak lekker is lekkerder” so wees kak lekkerder and don’t let the kak catch you of guard. Go out and confuse people and please for the sake of your underwear remember your kak papier.

  31. Wessel Botha : June 6, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    Personally my number one thing that can NOT be left behind is a beer funnel(bong). This item is essential for making you stand out from the crowd and portray that you are here to party and have a good time. I mean, who doesn’t love the challenge of downing a beer faster than your tjommie? If you want to make new friends and let them come to you, hold it up in the air and shout “OPPIKOPPI” and down that beer without hesitation. The beer funnel is a very powerful tool and you should use it wisely. It requires patience and years of practise.

    Stay Classy Oppikoppi!

  34. Jacques malan : June 8, 2018 at 8:02 am

    Hi after my second oppikopi, I made a back back with 2 bottles inside with a straw from it, one for booze and one for clean water, hands full free drinking and washing made life so much easier at this great festival, I would appreciate the tickets so so much, hope for the best

  35. My number one thing will definitely be ‘n lekker hoodie! There to keep you warm when you’re cold, cover your face when you want to sleep and even use as a cushion when you pass out next to a tree!

  36. Money!!!!! Lots of money to blow on good food and alcohol…

  37. Gina Maharaj : June 11, 2018 at 9:02 am

    1. Lumo socks…so you don’t lose your friends.

  38. WATER!! A good 25 litre canister- preferably with a tap on it! That way you create the illusion of running water.

  39. Jacques Celliers : June 12, 2018 at 11:24 am

    I discovered in 2015 that there’s one thing that I now need to take with me to every Oppikoppi, and that is a pretty crazy and awesome outfit or costume. The Fantastic Mr Vos Vos was my 3rd Oppi, and this year I decided to go all out and I shaved “Oppi” and “Koppi” into the sides of my head, made fox masks to wear at the festival, and got a Santa Claus morphsuit that I basically lived in. With all these outfits I drew so much attention to myself and attention from the Oppi crowd is beautiful because everyone wanted to chat to me and I made so many friends. I was also offered so many free drinks because people just loved the effort. Nothing makes Oppikoppi (or any festival) more special than drinks and meeting and partying with new friends, and that’s why since then the first thing I have packed in is my morph suit, Pikachu onesie, and any other outfits I have planned.

  40. Fucksakes, guys! I have been refreshing like all day. Sticking to my original answer, can’t Koppi without a kaartjie! But playing on some feelings now too; I’m flying in from Beijing LITERALLY for Oppi. Can show flight tickets for proof, so saving a few bucks on an actual ticket means I can buy you guys a beer. 😉
