Nyege Nyege Festival 2022 Uganda dance music festival

Nyege Nyege Festival 2022 – Uganda dance music festival. Putting on a festival in Uganda is no easy task. As Nyege Nyege’s founders explained last year, party essentials, from portaloos to CDJs, are in short supply on the shores of the Nile.

But the festival’s global reputation is growing fast, thanks to its position at the heart of a blossoming electronic music scene in East Africa.

At its 2018 edition, you’ll be able to hear everything from Tuareg wedding music to Kenyan Lingala, as well as international guests like Juliana Huxtable, Jlin and Errorsmith, plus Nyege Nyege, favourites Kampire, Otim Alpha and Nihiloxica.

One of East Africa’s most popular music festivals has been cleared to go ahead after members of parliament tried to ban it for “promoting gays” in the country.

The Nyege Nyege festival will now take place next week but under “strict guidelines,” according to Ugandan Prime Minister Robina Nabbanja, quoted in local media reports.”

The event (Nyege Nyege) will go on but under strict guidelines. It attracts thousands of foreign tourists; we can’t miss out on this opportunity at a time when the country is recovering from the effects of Covid-19,” Nabbanja said at a meeting of stakeholders, including the organizers.
