In addition to festival headliners from West Africa, Asa and Mr. Eazi, Kenya’s Blinky Bill and a range of exciting other artists have already been announced with more announcement to come shortly.

The 2019 line-up includes a range of cutting-edge artists who are pushing the limits of performance. Ain the Machine is an AudioVisual storyteller with a clear goal: to transform the way we interact with music. It is music without instruments. A concept he calls, Musica Biotronica.


Switzerland’s Puts Marie as an indie band has been described as a mix between a great rock’n’roll circus and theater with strange poetry, while Colombia’s Alibombo, besides being a percussion group, is an experimentation laboratory. With noise that creates music from recycled elements.

The line-up also includes, Lizzy- a German artist who merges hypnotic drumming with wearable 3D printing, along with Aramboa, Austria’s Downbeat, Triphop, IDM, Neo-Soul, Bass Music, Dubstep and Jazz Electronic Soul combo.

Some of South Africa’s most innovative acts will also be in e’Swatini, as DJ Invizible – the self-described master of staging creative guerrilla performances, as well as Dope Saint Jude, a rapper and producer with a defiant, life-affirming queer perspective, have also been announced.
