Oppikoppi is a beloved South African festival that takes place at what is affectionately known as 'The Dust Bowl' in Limpopo. The festival is all about community and great local and international music so in 2017 Jägermeister unveiled the MeisterHaus - an orange German house that stands tall amongst the fever trees, a place where festival goers can escape the heat with an Ice Cold Shot, enjoy a lime infused Jäger cocktail or just chill out and listen to the uplifting sounds Jägermeister Brass Cartel.
The convention for brands at events is a community manager on site doing basic communication and an after-movie showing the highlights of the event. There is a distinct lack of consistency in quality and narrative between the on-the-ground content and the after event content. Jägermeister wanted to change this – taking a production team to Oppikoppi to create high quality production value content on the ground. Creating content that moves at the speed of the feed and culture.
To close the gap between on-the-ground and post-event content, we released high-quality production from the event in less than half an hour of its recording. That meant that excellent content was published instantaneously, keeping the relevance current and avoiding the inevitable post-event fatigue. Throughout the festival the videos were filmed, edited and posted on the same day, making those who couldn’t be there feel directly involved through our all-access content.
