Oppikoppi goes global

2012-08-10 07:04

Oppikoppi has teamed up with Google+ and YouTube to give fans who can’t make it to the event the chance to experience the atmosphere and connect directly with performing musicians.

From July 25, fans have tuned in for Hangouts on Air with some of their favourite artists, including Jack Parow, aKING and Enter Shikari.

At the festival itself, fans from across the world can tune in to daily Hangout shows and watch live streams of OppiKoppi’s two main stages via the Oppikoppi Google+ Page.

Hosted by Rolling Stone magazine’s Miles Keylock, Diane Coetzer and Anton Marshall, and joined by radio diva Michelle Constant, the Hangouts will feature Oppikoppi artists such as AKA, Shadowclub, BLK JKS, The KONGOS, Seether and Vusi Mahlasela.

The line-up for live streamed shows will feature 20 hours of Oppikoppi footage, including the complete performances of HHP, aKING, Vusi Mahlasela and many more.

Dedicated YouTube crews at the event will record all the best of what Oppikoppi has to offer and daily uploads can be seen on Oppikoppi’s YouTube channel.
