The Inspector Cluzo from France will be gracing our local stages yet again. Describing themselves as funk`n`roll, they are known for their energetic live performances. Having played RAMfest in 2013, crowds know that the language difference doesn’t interfere with their happy atmosphere, unique sound and message of “F**k the bass player”.
Local lineup includes acts from a variety of genres. Old favourites Springbok Nude Girls are set to perform as well as the winners of this year’s Best Rock Album Sama, Van Coke Kartel. Albert Frost and Dan Patlansky will play a special collaboration. 20 years after their first Oppikoppi performance, Durban rockers Urban Creep will return to mark the momentous occasion. Other rock favourites include Zebra and Giraffe, Newtown Knife Gang, Stoker, Boargazm, City of Heros, aKing, Valiant Swart and Gangs of Ballet.
Indie fans can enjoy Michael Lowman, Ard Matthews, The Hind Brothers, Shortstraw and Matthew Mole.
Reason and HHP will entertain hip-hop fans and Spoek Mathambo, PHFat, The Muffinz and BCUC will also bring their alternative edge to the lineup.
The announcements were made via the Oppikoppi app, an interactive platform that made users “discover” band names by pointing their phones at indicated points of interest such as Table Mountain. Announcements are expected to be made weekly until the end of May.
