Africa’s most anticipated festival, Nyege Nyege, returns this September in a historic edition to the shores of the Nile in Uganda, on a new site at the majestic Itanda Falls.
The festival is built on Pan-African values and offers a unique opportunity to dive into the abundance of music from East Africa and beyond.
The four-day Nyege Nyege festival, which runs from Thursday, September 15, to Sunday, September 18, features over 300 performers on seven stages, ranging from marching bands to hip-hop gangs, rising stars to living legends. By upgrading to a brand new site, Nyege Nyege is confident that it will be able to offer revelers a more comfortable and safe experience while putting Itanda on the map as one of East Africa’s most exciting tourist destinations.
Itanda Falls is located a few kilometers from Jinja town. The majestic waterfalls, which are known for their grade six rapids, will be a highlight of the festival with necessary security precautions underway in partnership with relevant authorities.
This includes blocking off the falls so that only adventure activities, such as a brand-new bungee jump, Nile rafting, paddling, sunset cruises, and waterparks in collaboration with ADRIFT, will have access to them.
2022 will also mark the official opening of Nyegeville, a city within the festival where revelers will be treated to 5-star camping and glamping facilities, including small lodges overlooking the Nile, experiential camping that will include everything from hot showers to morning yoga classes, safe lockers, and even a private beach.
With Nyegeville, the festival wants to emulate the biggest festivals in the world, giving people an on-site accommodation experience that will allow them to live the experience to the fullest.
The festival is partnering with TREEPZ to offer affordable and convenient transportation options from the airport, Kampala, and Jinja to Itanda Falls, making it an easy journey to the festival.
