Announced this year by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see”, 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.

Each year a multi-generational global community of more than 20,000 “BRING THEIR FIRE” to the scenic farmlands of the Malkerns Valley to experience the three day event renowned for eclectic and multi-dimensional programming rooted in world music including a compelling line-up of theatre, poetry, dance, art exhibits & installations, story-telling, puppetry, film, and themed workshops. A vibrant handcraft market, family-friendly performances & KidZone as well as the recently introduced interactive art and dialogue space, The Barn, all combine to create a magically eclectic three day entertainment experience.

With profits going to support local charities, MTN BUSHFIRE serves, in the words of one journalist, “as a living, breathing, creative ecosystem.”


MTN Bushfire invites you to Bring Your Fire to this year’s festival and experience three unforgettable days celebrating music, art and performance.Bringing Your Fire is a concept that encourages the proactive contribution of individuality. Your Fire is your energy, your drive, your opinions & your passions.

Now in its 9th year, the festival has achieved a worldwide reputation for it’s visionary approach, authenticity and call to action for creating awareness of the need for social change.

MTN Bushfire is a celebration of the human spirit and the joy of creative expression that seeks to encourage everyone to contribute and engage.

The creative programming of workshops, discussions, art exhibitions and guest speakers enable a platform for conversation and debate to better understand the issues surrounding us from community level challenges to global concerns.

Before, during and after the festival, we will be showcasing a selection of LIVE conversations, comments, thoughts and discussion shared on social media using the #BringYourFire hashtag. Large LED screens will feature selected content throughout the event.

“Swaziland's MTN BUSHFIRE festival was founded six years ago in a spirit of cultural exploration. Through our ideals and our actions we continue to explore and redefine the typical festival formula.

In doing this we ask questions of ourselves, of artists, and of our audiences: How best do we shape the Festival we have created, and what do we want to say? What role should the arts play in our society? How do we become Practical Dreamers? Exploring these questions defines our festival and is the real spirit that people take away!”
