Nyege Nyege Music Festival is the most popular festival in Africa celebrating arts, culture and music.
World's celebrated Music Festival 2018: Nyege Nyege is defined as the "irresistible urge to dance". The festival fuses the urgency with NON-STOP music to create astonishing effect. Nyege Nyege takes it’s inspiration from the legendary World Festival of the Black Arts’ that took place in Dakar Senegal in 1966. Now an extended invitation from Uganda to the world, hosted at Nile Discovery Beach in Jinja.
Nyege Nyege is back in 2019, with an even much massive and explosive line-up. North, West, South and East Africa are all sending their underground music legends to come and represent the best of what contemporary African music has to offer: Kuduros, Kwaito, Afro house, Hiplife, Tuareg rock, cosmic synths from Niger, Arab tech, Morrocan bass, Zouk bass, Soukous, Balani, Funana, and Swhaili trap and Tigrinian blues to name some of the genres that will be represented by the founders and pioneers of each respective style.
Nyege Nyege will also showcase the connections between Africa and the rest of the World Afro Diaspora with Cumbia from South America, Vodou jazz from Haiti and underground hip hop from America. Complementing the line-up will be some of the hottest producers and DJ’s from Europe whose work is in conversation with African sounds.
