Nope, this is not a belated April Fool’s joke.

Steyn Entertainment announced this morning that Rocking the Daisies Music and Lifestyle Festival will be collaborating with OppiKoppi for the 2017 event, ahead of the festival’s 12 year anniversary.

This year, OppiKoppi will be taking place on the same weekend as #RTD2017 (5-8 October), with both festivals sharing their headlining acts.

The first OppiKoppi event took place in May 1994, and the festival has since cemented itself as the legendary go-to rock event to kick off the summer season. 2017 will be the Oppi’s 23rd instalment, featuring 7 stages, roughly 160 sets of music and entertainment, 20 000 rabid fans and a few roving pieces of craziness.

It’s the first time in the history of SA where two promoters will work together on this scale, to create explosive experiences, regardless of which event fans choose to attend. The combined attendance at both festivals is expcted to reach 45 000, as fans decend on Darling and Northam for two of SA’s biggest music and lifestyle festivals.

    I hope the artist selection is not watered down by the collaboration with Daisies. Last year I drove to oppi from CT to experience. I loved oppi, much more than daisies. Now I may save money and do daisies again but if there aren’t any alternative bands then I wont go to either or one night in cape town if that’s still happening. If daisies is clever they’ll have an alternative stage and include all music fans as such
