About MTN Nyege Nyege
MTN Nyege Nyege stands for respect and abundant joy, it stands for Africa and Africans, for underground music and musicians, it stands for fun and curiosity and strives towards inclusivity and wonder, something of a perfect world you might say.
Born out of an act of sheer collective madness in the rainy season of 2015 (after which it moved to the dry season), MTN Nyege Nyege Festival is now considered the most important 4-day international music festival in East Africa for both its one of a kind curation and its unique afropolitan party vibe.
MTN Nyege Nyege is part of a Kampala based arts incubator that includes an arts residency and community studios, a record label and artist management agency called Nyege Nyege Tapes and a party crew called Boutiq Electroniq. The Festival is the platform on which we showcase our new productions and the artists we work with, making it a highlight for both audiences and musicians alike.
The festival takes place in a breathtaking forest on the shores of the Nile River, just a few minutes away from the Source and includes a brand new camping village in 2018. Despite attracting a global audience and being international in nature, MTN Nyege Nyege is not your classic “destination festival”, it is first and foremost a celebration of Ugandan culture and African music, and the “Spirit of UG” is ever present. In 2017, it was voted Uganda’s event of the year.
