MTN Bushfire Festival

The MTN BUSHFIRE Festival sees some of Africa’s best artists performing in an intimate and 100% socially responsible festival. 

Lauded by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see”, and  recently named as BBC’s Top African Festival, MTN BUSHFIRE  is Eswatini’s internationally acclaimed music & arts festival that celebrates creative expression whilst promoting social responsibility, stimulating the economy and drawing talent and tourists from across Africa and around the world.

More about event

  • Each year a multi-generational global community of up to 20,000 “bring their fire” to the scenic Malkerns Valley to experience an eclectic Pan-African and international line-up of live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts. 

  • A vibrant handcraft market, family-friendly performances & KidZone as well as the recently introduced interactive art and dialogue space, The Barn, combine to create a magically eclectic three day entertainment experience.

  • Formed in 2006, MTN BUSHFIRE has a well-deserved reputation for its visionary approach. The festival aims to develop the arts whilst promoting social responsibility.
