Bongo Maffin to grace the MTN BUSHFIRE 2014!


Bongo Maffin.

 MTN BUSHFIRE 2014, Swaziland’s international festival of the arts will be taking place from May 30th – June 1st 2014. This year’s festival promises the most diverse line-up to date, with the event set to become the largest world music festival in the region.  The event  is increasing the global diversity of its line-up to create something truly unique in Southern Africa.

Already well-established as a top Pan-African festival, it was recently named by CNN as one of the “7 African Music Festivals.

Festival goers will enjoy dozens of artists from all over the world performing in a 100% socially responsible festival. More than just a music festival, the festival is a celebration of live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts. A vibrant handcraft market, family-friendly performances & KidZone as well as the interactive art and dialogue space, The Barn, combine to create a magically eclectic three day entertainment experience.

Already for this year, artists from over 10 countries have been confirmed including diverse acts such as the much-loved and 70’s inspired Bogota based Colombian Salsa artists, La 33, Mokoomba (Zimbabwe), Under Kontrol (France), Red Five Point Star (Slovenia) and Imperial Tiger Orchestra (Switzerland).

Some of South Africa’s biggest and most loved names will also be heading to the festival this year with confirmed artists including none other than multi- Grammy award winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo, as well as the incredible BongoMaffin, Uhuru, Derek Gripper, Dan Patlansky and Muzart.
