So Oppikoppi confirmed the Used but shortly after they announced that Chevelle are not coming to South Africa for the festival, personally it suits me more because I am in fact not very fond of Chevelle. The Used are one of those bands that I listened to in High School with Sum41, so this will be like a High School reunion for me, listening to bands I admired when I was still a teenager. But in my wildest thoughts I would never have thought I would see them live, and in South Africa.
But there are those people that are demanding a refund for the ticket they already purchased because they wont be able to see Chevelle. Come on, Oppikoppi is not just about the bands, sure it plays a big part in the whole setup. Oppi is a destination away from the busy city life to a world that a few have experienced, it is a place where race, gender or social status does not play roles. It is where chaos reigns, and that is why I am going, the bands are just a BIG PLUS!
So go if you have a ticket, if you want to sell it, do it! Just remember that you will be missing a great party.
