The Nyege Nyege Music and Arts Festival has announced its 9th annual festival to be held from 14th to 17th November 2024 at the Source of the Nile by Jinja/Njeru, Uganda.

The festival will celebrate Pan-African diversity under the theme ‘Afrogalactic Carnival’ and will feature traditional acts from all over the country.

Nyege Nyege festival will also showcase the diversity of Ugandan traditional music, with traditional acts coming from all over the country. It will also showcase the many talents in exile in Uganda, including Sudanese, Congolese, Eritrean, Burundian, and Ethiopian artists.

“Nyege Nyege aims to reflect Uganda’s hospitality and cultural diversity, advocating for peace and an insatiable thirst for a good time, which is the exact definition of Nyege Nyege in Uganda,” Festival organizer Derek Debru.
