The festival will take place From May 27 to 29 and will be the first full in-person festival in two years.

The uniquely African, yet globally infused festival entertains thousands of people in an atmosphere of tolerance and passionate commitment to music, the arts and the environment.

MTN Bushfire has also been hailed by CNN as one of the “7 African Music Festivals You Really Have To See” and listed by BBC as a “Top African Festival”.

Tickets are now available for purchase on Howler from R1 100.

Please note, however, that there is a limited on the number of attendees, as one of the numerous Covid safety protocols put in place by MTN Bushfire.

As one of the Covid-19 safety protocols, festival goers will be required to provide valid proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 to enter the festival grounds. This is a requirement for all ages eligible for vaccination – a valid ticket alone will not be enough to gain entry.

This decision has been taken by organisers as it is the best way to ensure the health and safety of festival goers, artists, festival staff and local communities.

Holders of 2020 tickets are assured that their tickets remain valid for the 2022 festival and will be honoured.
