Pulse Photos: What You Missed At MTN Uganda’s Nyege Nyege Festival In Jinja

Thousands of people from all over the world that turned up to have the weekend of their lives at Nile Discovery Beach were regaled with various musical performances from over 100 acts on different stages. The dead spirit and party animals within people arose to the beats. The party all day all night long disposition was everyone’s share at the moment as there was a lot to drink and eat with a major camper’s experience at the outskirts of the grounds and the experience was lived to its full meaning.

Nyege nyege being the biggest 4-day international music festival in East Africa, very Akin to USA’s Coachella, people traveled from all over the world to have this experience with Ugandans and still hopeful for what next year brings.

What to tag along with on your “MTN Nyege Nyege Packing List” as you head to Nile Beach Jinja

As the dates come closer for the much anticipated festival “MTN Nyege Nyege festival” happening from the 6th of September up to the 9th day of September at Nile beach in Jinja, to ensure that our Pulsers enjoy the fun filled weekend in a safe and responsible mood, in this piece we are going to list for you basic things that shouldn’t miss out on your packing list or better yet, your shopping list.

Phone charger, in this era where you have to lit up your social media pages as away of sharing an experience, you wouldn’t want to see a battery low notification when the party is getting lit and you want to create FOMO, therefore, as you pack tooth paste which by the way should be accompanied by a pair of tooth brush and a towel ,don’t forget to drop your phone charger in the sides of your bag as for those who have power banks, then that’s an added advantage to enjoy your weekend out while sharing with friends without limitations by battery life.

Dress code, we all know Nyege Nyege represents a bit of culture, so we would rather you carry with you at least clothes with an African print so you can celebrate your culture with other revelers. Still on dress code, Like ‘Stonebowy’ said in his song, “No one knows tomorrow” , just so you know you will need you a pair or two of hoodies to keep you warm just in case the sky decides to bless us with what Mr. Eazi called Holy water in Leg over.

On creating for yourself a healthy environment that will allow you to party without complications, we all know there is a time when the body will need to rest irrespective of what one will be doing at the Nile beach, therefore don’t forget to pack a blanket and bed sheets given that the event shall be on the shores of a river so there will be cold moments during the festival and a warm blanket can save you that fate as you enjoy the festival.
