Twin Atlantic Looking Forward To Oppikoppi
Let’s be honest there is more to Oppikoppi than the dusty camping, and having a free pass to start drinking before the Boeing even left the tarmac. If that was your main plan this year might I suggest cheaper alternative weekend away in a -2 star caravan park. You pay for the music. To see the best in international and local acts and the wonderful Vos-Vos is included in your bundle.
One of the bands that will be gracing the stage at Oppikoppi is the Scottish boys from Twin Atlantic. Having just wrapped up their UK tour Twin Atlantic has made quite an impression on the music sense. USA Today called their sound:” As catchy as any boy band you’ll hear all year, but built with old-fashioned rock-guitar”. Singles like “Brothers and Sister” and “Hold On” burrows their way into your mind and before you know it you’re humming along. Never again will you be able to be stuck in load shedding without the lyrics to “Heart and Soul” popping in to your head. “Coming from a punk rock background, it took a while – we like to say we went the scenic route” commented Sam McTrusty ,lead singer.
The band is extremely excited to cross our borders. “It’s going to be a trip of a lifetime for us and something we never realized we could achieve with this band” added McTrusty.
The band announcement of the band to the line-up has caused a bunch of mixed feelings on social media. To those mumbling and grimacing in the corner, as Yo-Landi Vi$$er says, “Don’t moan. Rather put down the microphone and go home.”
Afrika en Oppikoppi is nie vir sissies nie. Some bands you are going love and others you won’t. I love a good stake but am not going to flying scissor kick a vegan for their “different” dietary decision.
Yes as said earlier you pay for the music selection at the festival. However so did Twin Atlantic fans. Blogger Ed England explains this beautifully in his article “OPPIKOPPI 21: STOP COMPLAINING AND JUST DO IT!”
