New site, more experience as Nyege Nyege returns in 9th edition

Nyege Nyege festival-goer prepares to strike a drum at the Itanda Falls on the second day of Nyege Nyege festival, the annual four-day international music festival, in Jinja, on September 16, 2022.

Nyege Nyege Music and Arts Festival is returning for the 9th edition from the 14th to the 17th of November in Jinja.

The festival is however going to be staged at a new site, twelve acres at the Source of the Nile in Jinja, Njeru. The site is opposite last year’s location which saw more than 20,000 people from across Uganda, Africa, and the globe gather for the four-day event to hear some of Africa’s most exciting acts.

The new site features a brand new aquapark, ample parking, and camping infrastructures, and is naturally secured, making it the perfect home for Nyege Nyege to stage this year’s event.

The organizers alongside long-term partner Talent Africa have partnered with neighboring lands to establish and run this year’s campsite, which will be directly connected to the festival site.

Nyege Nyege will also have a special partnership with Kingfisher Resort, which will offer accommodation five minutes away from the site.

Themed ‘Afrogalactic Carnival’, the event is to be a celebration of Pan-African diversity and will aim to combine future-forward music with ancestral traditions, highlighting Uganda’s natural beauty and rich tapestry of cultures.

The festival organiser Derek Debru said he was delighted that the event would be returning for a ninth year and encouraged to book tickets early while they remain on sale at a discounted price.

“Nyege Nyege aims to reflect Uganda’s hospitality and cultural diversity, advocating for peace and an insatiable thirst for a good time, which is the exact definition of Nyege Nyege in Uganda,” he said.

Just like last year, the festival will be working with all security stakeholders to ensure it is a resounding success. Long-term sponsor Uganda Breweries will host three distinct experiences at the event, in addition to a new Hakuna Kulala stage that will deliver a 96-hour music and performance marathon comprising live acts, DJs, and dance and theatre performances.
