As the countdown to Africa’s biggest music festival, Nyege Nyege, continues, plans are underway for the best experience at the grand new location, Itanda Falls. Preparations are going on to make the magnificent grounds safe, memorable, and habitable for the tens of thousands of local and foreign revelers that are anticipated from the 15th to the 18th of September.

Invited by His Highness the Kyabazinga (King) Wilberforce III of Busoga and the Busoga Ministry of Tourism, the festival is moving to one of Busoga’s main cultural hotspots: the Itanda Falls. Known for its grade 6 rapids, the majestic waterfalls will be a highlight of the festival, as all adequate security measures are taken by all relevant authorities. These include a mega wall fence cutting off access to the falls but leaving just a view that will stand adjacent to one of the main festival stages.

Nyege Nyege is confident that the new site 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 tourism destinations. This year’s Nyege Nyege 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 a private beach.
