Born in the rainy season of 2015 (after which it moved to the dry season), Nyege Nyege Festival is considered the most important 4-day international music festival in East Africa for both its one of a kind curation and its unique East African party vibe.
It aims to showcase all the exciting development on the East African scene, show daring projects and give a real voice to the underground, making it a highlight for both audiences and musicians alike. Despite attracting a global audience and being international, Nyege Nyege is not your classic “destination festival”. It is a celebration of Ugandan culture and African music.
The festival takes place in a breathtaking forest on the shores of the source of the mighty River Nile, perfect for a swim or spiritual contemplation, as well as wild river rafting and other fun things.
Nyege Nyege stands for peace, love, and abundant joy.
