Muddy or Magnificent – Mieliepop 2018

It’s your third year in a row going to Mieliepop, so you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. What to pack, where the good camping spots are, what time of day to go for a booze cruise, et cetera.

Hello Beautiful - The Republic of Mieliepop 2018

Mieliepop Q&A: Hello Beautiful

Hello Beautiful has been stunning audiences for a couple of years now with their 80s-inspired mostly-instrumental synth-pop. Starting out as a solo studio project by relative all-rounder musician Matthieu Auriacombe (Beach Party, Kidofdoom, and now also Van Pletzen), Hello Beautiful has evolved into a full band – and that’s how you’ll be able to experience the alt/electro disco at Mieliepop next weekend.

Introducing Van Pletzen

‘n “Kak lekke vibe” – Van Pletzen kom Oppikoppi toe

Van Pletzen is ‘n Afrikaanse feel-goed band wat bestaan uit Matthieu Auriacombe (aka Nik-Nax, van Beach Party, Hello Beautiful, en Kidofdoom) en Peach van Pletzen (van Yesterday’s Pupil en Bittereinder). Hulle maak musiek met ‘n redelike unieke, humor-belaaide aanslag, en stel hul liedjies vry saam met gestileerde musiekvideos. Ons het met Peach gaan gesels oor die groep se oorsprong, hul debuut by Oppikoppi, en wat nog voorlê.
