Massive fire expected at the Bushfire

On the high. Sho- Majodzi will be at the MTN Bushfire in eSwatini.

The diverse line-up reflects the festival’s identity as a uniquely African, and yet globally infused festival experience.  The MTN Bushfire main stage consistently plays host to some of Africa (and the world’s) top artists, featuring well-known and loved favorites, as well as introducing crowds to international artists of the highest calibre.

With additional stages including the House on Fire Ampitheatre and The Barn, DJ focused dance floors and a range of other activities, MTN Bushfire caters for a diverse and eclectic audience of over 26,000 annually.

More than a music festival, MTN Bushfire is a holistic experience made up of a rich texture of arts, cultures, crafts, food markets, and specialized zones that combine to create an explosive three-day event and a memorable take home experience.

Also, remember that the official MTN Bushfire campsite is now open from noon on Thursday May 24th, making your festival weekend even longer. Get to the border early on Thursday and avoid the queues.

With just over one week to make sure you have your tickets secured before you arrive as tickets are already sold out and there will be no tickets available at the gates.
