MTN Bushfire will take place for a seventh year, celebrating the best of music, poetry, theatre and performance artists in the kingdom of Swaziland for three days of sun and art.

The child-friendly festival at the end of May will feature acts from Europe, South America, South Africa, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom, to name a few. Attendees can look forward to the likes of Oliver Mtukudzi, Spoek Mathambo, Imperial Tiger Orchestra, Uhuru and Bongo Maffin.

MTN Bushfire calls on revellers to “Bring Your Fire”, which is a call to action to contribute to nurturing the Swazi arts and cultural scene, while raising awareness and funds to tackle the kingdom’s most pressing social needs.

Through the Swazi non-governmental organisation Young Heroes, the event donates 100% of its profits to orphans, and 100% of merchandise proceeds goes to the non-profit rural community development project Gone Rural boMake.

Festival goers are encouraged to make use of its fully-equipped camping facilities, set up by All Out Africa. For the creatures of comfort, there are lodges available that are a short distance from the festival. 

Tickets are available online, from R200 for a day pass, R450 for the weekend and R950 for a golden lounge pass. Children between five and 10 pay R150 for a day or festival pass, and those under five attend free of charge. Find more information.
