This Easter, Amanzimtoti will play host to one of the most exciting beach festivals to take place on the South Coast.

A first of its kind, the Oppi Beach Rugby and Music Festival will be taking place between 18 and 21 April.

The event, which will be held in the idyllic settings of Amanzimtoti main beach, will feature a festive, holiday vibe with a wide array of family fun events taking place from 9am to 5pm each day.

What makes the Oppi Beach festival unique is that it is a multi-dimensional event that will feature a variety of activities. The main festival will consist of three key aspects namely: a beach rugby series, a music festival and family games and activities.

“The event is unique in the sense that it is not just another festival,” explains Martin Nel, one of the event organisers.

Jannie Pretorius, a former well-known Transvaal rugby player and an event organiser, adds that the Oppi Beach festival is a first of its kind.

“Rugby combined with music on the beach…there is no such event is SA,” says Pretorius.

Aside from the music and rugby there will also be a wealth of other family activities taking place on the beach throughout the event. A program packed with beach games has been designed to keep both young and old alike having fun over the course of the event.

“The public can expect a complete fun filled, family orientated, holiday resort style entertainment package at one of the best holiday resort towns in South Africa,” Nel comments.

“The influx of holiday makers will have a positive impact on the local economy as we are offering them, the public, a bit more than just a holiday at the beach.

“As a complete package we offer a comprehensive value added package to local business, and with their business participation this will become a long term and financially sustainable venture.”

Beach and festival goers will be treated to four solid days of good live music, sport and fun in the sun as the Oppi Beach festival celebrates the last few days of summer over the long weekend. Activities will run each day and guarantees to have the whole family participating in the fun.
