Now in its 6th year the Bush Fire Festival is Swaziland's major annual music festival. It will  be held from the 25 - 27 May 2012 and staged at the famous House-on-Fire. The festival’s theme for 2012, revealed during the official launch of the event on 24 Feb 2012 held at the Malandela’s lawn, is "the art of self discovery". We'll keep you posted (line up, tickets etc.)!

Bush Fire's annual line up features live music, theatre, poetry, film, circus, dance and visual arts from all over the globe. Each year a diverse audience of up to 20,000 people come together over three days to celebrate cultural meeting points, fuelling a feast of magical performances from Africa and beyond. 100% of the profits from Bush Fire are donated to Young Heroes, a Swazi NGO providing support to AIDS orphans.
