2019 MTN Bushfire Overview:

BRING YOUR FIRE is MTN Bushfire’s inspiring call to action, a concept that encourages the proactive contribution of the individual.
Your Fire is your energy, your spirit, your passion, and your drive to make a difference.

Since its inception, MTN Bushfire has encouraged participants and guests alike to heed this call, and in the process the festival has achieved a worldwide reputation for its visionary and authentic approach to raising awareness of the need for social change.

As a celebration of the human spirit, MTN Bushfire encourages the joy of creative expression and invites everyone to contribute and engage through a programme of creative workshops, discussions, art exhibitions and guest speakers. This programme of interactive events enables conversation and debate that leads to a better understanding the issues surrounding us, from community level challenges to global concerns.

MTN Bushfire Director Jiggs Thorne explains further, “Swaziland’s MTN BUSHFIRE festival was founded 10 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!”

You need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, some warm clothes, a towel and your toiletries. MTN Bushfire 2019 showers are basic but clean and have hot water with short queue’s depending on the time of day. A torch will come in very handy after dark and a warm pair of boots, gloves and a beanie will make you more comfortable late at night.

We have all the cups & plates for meals but we advise you to bring a plastic cup for your personal drinks as we will not loan out cups because they seem to disappear and never to be found again.

Luggage space on the bus is limited to a certain degree so bring a small backpack for your clothes and a day bag to help us with the space.

ABOUT MTN BUSHFIRE

MTN Bushfire is under the CNN list as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see.” It is a music & arts festival hosted in the majestic Swaziland and it is internationally acclaimed. MTN Bushfire 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.
