MTN Bushfire Main Stage

Blessed by an angel, the MTN BUSHFIRE Super Stage showcases the biggest international and continental artists to a pulsating crowd of thousands. The main stage opens out onto sprawling lawns & pristine farmland with the breath-taking Mzimba mountains rising in the background. Noted as the best music festival destination for a fantasy vacation by MTV Iggy/The Future of Music, this stage showcases an amazing balance of traditional and contemporary as well as collaborations from a broad range of countries and genres.

House on Fire Amphitheatre

The House on Fire Amphitheatre is an awe-inspiring performance area with a distinctly unique flavour, at its core, a sunken ‘Afro-Shakespearean Globe Theatre’ which houses a range of performances and events in music, poetry, dance and others. A piece of artwork in itself, House on Fire continues to grow and expand, at 14 years old, a building that will never be finished.

The Barn Acoustic Stage

This stage is hosted in a renovated barn with a contemporary feel. Pallet furniture and a wood chip floor set the tone for a more intimate festival experience. Featuring a craft beer component and blackboard walls for impromptu expression this engaging open mic space adjoins the Green Zone featuring an organic café and solar solutions.


On the edge of the Festival grounds, the outer limit is covered by a nomadic stretch tent with a cocktail bar and features DJs, rap and hip-hop artists. This MTN Bushfire Firefly stage is a high-energy environment which creates opportunity for rising performers. A highly-publicized selection competition will take place in the lead up to the festival to identify the line-up.
