Lauded by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see”, and most recently named as BBC’s Top African Festival, MTN Bushfire is Swaziland’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.
MTN Bushfire is pleased to be able to announce just some of the diverse talent that will be featured at the 2016 Ten Year Anniversary edition of the event, taking place from May 27th – 29th. With tickets for this year’s event already selling fast- fans are urged to book tickets now to avoid missing out on this unique and amazing line-up.
Acts already announced by MTN Bushfire include Mali’s internationally acclaimed world-music stars Songhoy Blues whose debut album has been described by top music magazine NME as “a masterpiece of desert blues, blending American guitar licks with Malian grooves,” the exciting new South African genre breaking eclectic fusion of Afrobalkan Skadubhall Bombshelter Beast featuring Pitch Black Afro, Mafikizolo, whose 2014 comeback made waves across South Africa and beyond, Pablo Nouvelle, a filmmaker and musician from Switzerland who takes soul “back to the future” with a combination of new sounds and old samples, and Living Room – made up of Manu Delago, an Austrian percussionist and composer, best known as Bjork’s hang drummer and saxophonist and clarinet player Pepe Auer.
