Artists such as Zebra & Giraffe and Max Hoba are set to take the stage during the Oppikopi – Unknown Brother music festival.

People who have taken flights to Johannesburg can attend the Oppikoppi – Unknown Brother three-day festival in August.

The occasion has developed quite a name for itself over the years and the 2011 edition will hope to uphold that reputation for being a fun-packed celebration of South African music and culture.

It takes place at Oppikoppi Farm in Northam, Limpopo from August 5th to 7th.

A huge list of artists have already confirmed their appearances at the festival, including Zebra & Giraffe, Southern Gypsy Queen, Max Hoba, Johnny en die Maaiers and the unusually-monikered Haggis and Bong and Pipe Bong.

This will be the 18th edition of the event, which is often regarded as an Afrikaans music spectacle, but the organisers have stressed that a variety of cultures make up the performers and attendees.

Tickets for the festival cost 550 rand (£49.90). Doors open at 08:00 local time on the opening day and visitors must be 16 years old or older.
