Happy New Year Everybody ! Save the date!! SEPTEMBER 6-7-8-9 at the Source of the Nile, Nyege Nyege returns for its 4th edition!

Nyege Nyege was voted best event of 2017. Read below and get ready, only 9 months to go!

"Nyege Nyege became the passport for urban, cool, fresh and super awesome. Nyege Nyege did not just set the bar high, it became the gold standard by which all future events shall be judged. In Nyege Nyege, Ugandans and the world over discovered something within them. Males went to Nyege Nyege and returned as men. The female species went as girls and returned as women. This was not just an event, it was a moment when all the excitement that lived in many’s imaginations came to reality.

If feedback is anything to go by, Nyege Nyege could have earned itself the spot as the first Ugandan event to be concluded and not have any negative feedback from its crowd. Not even the soggy moments could curtail the fun, if anything, the rai and the mudd did more to make it an event to remember.

For three days, the third edition of Nyege Nyege was a threesome of great music, great food, great dance and unrivalled organisation. It under-promised and over-delivered. All afro)centric music genres were served with abandon, the sound and performances were delivered without any hold back. Imagine 400 musicians, on four stages (Umoja, Electro, Bell and Chill), imagine three days where one could not afford to blink, then you can imagine Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege was the source of originality, all birthed at the Nile Discovery Beach in Jinja at the Source of the Nile. It did tick all the boxes on our checklist. Yet, for a writer, words in themselves, cannot capture the event that was Nyege Nyege, it is an experience that must be felt on a very individual level. So for number one of 2017, Nyege Nyege takes the spot. Nyege Nyege will be back, September 6-7-8-9 2018, at the Nile Discovery Beach."
