With the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Southern Africa and across the globe, MTN Bushfire has taken the responsible and necessary decision to postpone the 14th Edition of the festival. You can still be part of our unique atmosphere of tolerance and celebration of diversity from 28 to 30 May, 2021!

If you’ve already purchased an MTN Bushfire festival ticket, #KeepTheFireBurning and keep your tickets as these will still be valid in 2021.

We’ve already sold two-thirds of our tickets and will be moving to 2021 pricing, so there’s no better time to secure your tickets than now!

Tickets have sold out well in advance of the festival for the last 5 consecutive years. You’ll be happy to know that tickets to next year’s festival are still available at 2020 pricing online and in select outlets in Eswatini and Mozambique.
