MTN Bushfire continues to #KEEPTHEFIREBURNING with the announcement of the MTN Bushfire 2021 Hybrid Festival Series, a year-round calendar of bespoke events combining digital and live experiences, all rooted in the spirit of inclusion and celebration of diversity that MTN Bushfire is synonymous with.

Showcasing a broad range of top artists from Africa and across the world, the MTN Bushfire 2021 Hybrid Festival Series will be a next-level experience featuring electrifying performances, unique regional collaborations, exclusive content, the long-awaited MTN Bushfire Firefly finale, up-close and personal access to artists, industry workshops, masterclasses, as well as activations supported by the #BRINGYOURFIRE social mandate. To top it off, the Series will culminate in one of the most exciting multicultural hybrid festival events to be seen on the African continent. This finale will combine customised and upgraded immersive online experiences with a scaled down and Covid-protocol focused in-person event, enabling fans to gather safely and share the magic that is MTN Bushfire.

MTN Bushfire’s number one priority continues to be the health and safety of the festival-goers, and all those in the festival community who make MTN Bushfire so special, therefore it is clear that holding the MTN Bushfire festival in its usual format will not be possible this year. The team is confident that, with the global advances being made against the pandemic, MTN Bushfire will be able to welcome everyone back to the home of the festival in the beautiful Malkerns Valley of Eswatini, in 2022.

Fire Starters holding tickets to the main MTN Bushfire Festival can remain secure in the knowledge that all festival tickets, camping and glamping passes that have been purchased for either the 2020 or 2021 festival will still be honoured and remain valid for the 2022 MTN Bushfire festival. Ticket-holders who won’t be able to make it to the festival in 2022 will have the opportunity to re-sell tickets on a secure online platform that will be launched closer to the festival, on a date to be announced.
