The fifth edition of the annual Nyege Nyege International Festival is underway at the Nile Discovery Beach Resort, Jinja. The festival opened on Thursday.
Sponsored by Uganda Waragi, the musical and arts fete has attracted almost 3,000 revellers from across the world.
The choice of Team No Sleep’s Sheebah Karungi as the festival’s headliner is still questionable but she will be joined by 300 other performers from over 30 different countries. These include Juan Atkins, Josey Rebelle, Shyboi, Santi, DTM Funk, Sisso, Slikback, Duke and MCZO among others.
With five stages – the Main Stage, Bell Jamz Stage, 154 Stage River Bay, Dark Star Stage and Eternal Disco, revellers on Saturday will be gearing up for Talent Africa’s 10-year anniversary celebrations on the main stage. Expect performances from Bigtrill, The Mith, Beenie Gunter, Navio, and Lilian Mbabazi among others.
Musicians aside, a long list of celebrated local and international DJs such as Naselow, Sir Aludah, Selector Jay, Marcelle among others are all lined up to keep partiers on their feet all weekend
