Oppikoppi announced yesterday that Bullet For My Valentine will be heading to South African for the 18th Oppikoppi festival.
Im sure a lot of you are wondering if they will pull through this time, for those less informed, in 2009 Bullet were set to play at Coca Cola Zero Fest, but at the last hour cited studio commitments and didnt make it over here. Lets hope the hold true to the plans this time around.
The Welsh Metal-core band is expected to headline this year’s festival which is taking place from 9-11 August in the Limpopo province this year.
Bullet for My Valentine comprises lead singer and rhythm guitarist Matthew Tuck, drummer Michael ‘Moose’ Thomas, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Michael ‘Padge’ Paget and bassist and backing vocalist Jason ‘Jay’ James and was named Best British Band in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by Kerrang!
News24 reported that additional South African tour dates for Bullet For My Valentine will be announced soon. Im guessing this will be a date in Cape Town, we all know Durban gets neglected and rightly so, i have been to see many international acts here in Durbs and I’m embarrassed at how shocking the support is. What’s wrong with the Durbanites>!?!
Also confirmed for this year’s festival: P.H.fat, Black Handed Kites, Lonehill Estate, The Graeme Watkins Project, Dance You’re on Fire, Shadowclub, Jack Parow, Catlike Thieves and Fokofpolisiekar to name a few. The line-up is starting to look good.
