Thirty thousand fans come out on Friday night to see some of their favourite musicians perform at MTN's Bushfire Festival.

Bumper to bumper traffic at the Oshoek and Ngwenya border posts did not deter fans from attending Africa’s Top Festival, according to BBC. Over the years Bushfire has attracted international performers and festival goers and this year was no different. 

The annual three-day music festival, which is held in the Malkerns Valley in Swaziland saw some of South Africa’s biggest stars take to the stage. The single digit temperatures did not stop fans from screaming their lungs out and dancing until the next morning. 

The festival kicked off with a performance by Mozambique’s Timbila Muzimba on the Main Stage which was followed by a performance by Brazil’s Flavia Coelho. Coelho, who we met before her performance said she was excited to be on Swaziland and introduce her music to a new crowd. 

Fans enjoyed South African actor and singer Nakhane’s performance, the star performed songs off his latest album, You Will Not Doe. Award-winning Hip Hop Star Khuli Chana also keep the audience on their feet. 

The Firefly Stage, which is reserved for DJs, was also set alight by DJ Mbally, DJ Mavava and Costa Titch. 

From music to food, it’s no wonder this festival is rated as one of the best on the continent. 

Saturday's performances kicks off with Sands, Kwesta and Sho Madjozi.
