Although it will be a chilly weekend in Gauteng, the music scene will be lit.

Now that the mask mandate and all Covid-19 regulations have officially been scrapped, South Africans will be heading out in droves to celebrate returning to normality after more than 800 days of Covid-19 regulations.

The Oppiland Festival will take place from 24 June to 26 June 2022 at the Stable Inn Conference Center in Springs.

The festival, organised by Lefra Productions and the Stable Inn Conference Center, is the largest ever planned for Gauteng, and will take place over three days catering for all audiences from Rock and Afrikaans to Country.

There will be more than thirty top artists performing, flea markets, children’s entertainment, food and drink, a wine tent, wrestling, theatre performances and an art workshop.  

“We have long realised that Gauteng does not offer a fun music festival and that is exactly why we created the Oppiland Festival. The Stable Inn Conference Center is the ideal venue to host such a festival, as the property spans more than 25 acres. There are many venues on the premises and we will use every inch to present a nice Festival,” said Frans Swart, Managing Director of Lefra Production and Festival Director of the Oppiland Fees.
