MTN Bushfire 2023 tickets are now on sale online, so you can Bring Your Fire to the 16th edition of Africa’s celebrated music and arts festival, from 26th-28th May 2023!

Together with our festival fans, we have kept the fire burning and now, rising like a phoenix from the embers of the past two years, MTN Bushfire 2023 invites everyone to come together for a transformational experience of hope, unity and renewal!

Named “Top African festival” by the BBC and hailed by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see,” MTN Bushfire is looking forward to reigniting the fire in the beautiful farmlands of the valley of Malkerns, Eswatini, for a family friendly, eclectic celebration of some of the finest music in Africa and beyond.

Full Festival, Glamping and Camping tickets are all available for sale on the MTN Bushfire website: Tickets have sold out for 8 years running, so make sure to get your tickets soon!

Those who have pre-registered for discounted Early Bird tickets have the chance to purchase them now, but better hurry because numbers are limited.

Enliven your MTN Bushfire experience by Glamping or Camping at the festival this year and stay safely on site in luxury style with exclusive glam-camping facilities or ready erected tent options!

Rush Adventures and Harambee Hotel offer very stylish glamping tent hotel accommodation close to the main arena of the festival. With a private walk-in tent, comfy twin beds, linen, chairs and tables, en suite shower and toilet, as well as breakfast, this is a one-of-a-kind ultimate camping experience right on the festival’s doorstep, saving you from driving anywhere.

All Out Africa has a variety of ready erected tent options adjacent to the main arena, or festivalgoers can bring their own tents or campers. Families may enjoy the exclusive Family Zone camping option, which allows vehicle parking in the campsite.

Please note that camping and glamping festivalgoers will need both a festival ticket and a camping ticket. MTN Bushfire is also a CASHLESS festival: money is loaded onto your festival wristband for in-festival purchases. Festivalgoers can pre-load funds onto their tickets via their Howler accounts.

Artist applications close 15th January 2023. Application links can be found on the MTN Bushfire website Artists page, as well as on our MTN Bushfire social media platforms.
