Flint, meet Spark
These Tuks students have talent and for the second time this duo will be performing for the dusty masses. Adelle and Josh intertwine their vocal and guitar skills to create beautiful and peaceful melodies. Even if folk music isn’t your thing, it’s cool to support fellow students.
Hugh Masekela and Ollie Viljoen
Remember last year when Mango Groove’s Oppikoppi performance had us all feeling patriotic? Hugh Masekela, brass virtuoso and jazz musician, and Ollie Viljoen, known as boeremusiek koning, are iconic local musicians that have joined forces to present a unique performance. This is the first time that Oppikoppi has seen two such accomplished instrumentalists collaborate in this way.
Formed in 1994, this rock band performed at the first Oppikoppi. Twenty years later they have made their return to the festival to provide the prawns with a double shot of nostalgia. If you’re too young to remember Urban Creep, you may want to dig through your parents’ CD collection to find their two critically acclaimed albums Sea Level and Tightroper.
