MTN BUSHFIRE FESTIVAL
Backlit by fiery mountain sunsets across acres of pristine famland, MTN BUSHFIRE is Swaziland's internationally acclaimed three day music & arts festival. Each year a multi-generational global community of up to 20,000 "bring their fire" to the scenic Malkerns Valley to experience an eclectic Pan-African and international line-up of live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts. A vibrant handcraft market, family-friendly performances & KidZone as well as the recently introduced interactive art and dialogue space, The Barn, combine to create a magically eclectic three day entertainment experience.
Founded in 2006, MTN BUSHFIRE has a well-deserved reputation for its visionary approach, integrity and "Call to Actionn" mandate which defines its commitment to nurturing the Swazi arts and cultural scene, whilst raising awareness and funds to tackle the nation's most pressing social needs. Donating 100% of its profits to Aids orphans through the Swazi NGO, Young Heroes
, and 100% of merchandise proceeds to the non- profit rural community development project - Gone Rural BoMake
, MTN BUSHFIRE serves, in the words of one jounalist, "as a living, breathing, creative ecosystem."
