Owning Oppikoppi: A Guide from Pace

Are you a first time festival goer from Cape Town or beyond attending OppiKoppi?

No worries – Pace Car Rental in Johannesburg has all the tips that will make your festival experience one worth coming back for!

In case anyone from work asks you “What’s OppiKoppi”?

Here are 5 facts to help you answer this besides “Roadtrip!”

  • OppiKoppi is the biggest multiple day music festival in South Africa.
  • It takes place in the Limpopo Province near the mining town of Northam.
  • Established in May 1994 with only 2000 attendees, to what has now substantially grown to a festival with many stages and an excess of 20,000 people attending each year.
  •  This festival is said to have boosted the South African rock music scene in the 90’s – it has since evolved into offering more genres including hip hop, drum ‘n bass, kwaito, indie, house among the list, it hosts more than 150 international and South African music and entertainment acts.
  • “Oppikoppi” is a colloquial abbreviation of the Afrikaans phrase “op die koppie” – which directly translated means “on the hill” – this is because it takes place on a dusty camp farm on a hill.

Before the trip you will need an affordable car rental that will get you and your peeps from A to B
