Taking place from 29 ‚Äď 31 May 2020, MTN Bushfire is more than simply a music festival. As one of Africa’s largest and most inclusive festival of music and the arts, MTN Bushfire has earned its global reputation as a distinctly African, yet globally-infused festival experience.
MTN Bushfire annually welcomes close to 30,000 admissions hailing from over 60 different countries, who make the journey from near and far to the peaceful Malkerns Valley of Eswatini. For the past six years the festival has completely SOLD OUT so guests are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets and accommodation early.
Every year, MTN Bushfire undergoes innovative upgrades to improve the overall festival experience. MTN Bushfire 2020 will offer an upgraded Golden Lounge, improved and expanded camping options, as well as the diverse and eclectic mix of music, arts, and culture that makes it such a unique and memorable experience.
The high demand for the festival’s Golden Lounge area has inspired some new and exciting developments. For the 14th¬†edition of MTN Bushfire, our guests can look forward to up-graded experiential lounges, premium service and a new and improved toilet block in the extended Golden Lounge area. For easy access and ultimate comfort, the space will also now have two entry and exit points.
All Out Africa Camping
The official camping area at MTN Bushfire, managed by All Out Africa, has grown in popularity over the years and next year it grows in size, comfort and adventure. It is conveniently located on the Amaswazi Farm at House Fire, within a walking distance to the festival arena. Open from Thursday 28 May to Monday 01 June 2020, the All Out Africa Bushfire Campsite offers the ultimate festival camping experience and direct access to the festival.
With plenty of space and 24-hour security, the site has a true festival atmosphere.  In 2020, the campsite will be relocating to a different position, with some exciting new additions: extra space for campers in some of the zones, a new Zen Zone and some campfire activities.
Camping is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the full MTN Bushfire experience and the team is committed to ensuring a peaceful, memorable, yet fun-filled camping experience for all. 
Campers are therefore reminded to heed awareness of the festival’s strong focus on tolerance, inclusion, safety and security for all.¬†Campers are requested to respect each other’s space, privacy, and above all to be part of ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
