The Ugandan festival’s seventh edition will be held on the banks of the Nile river, at Itanda Falls, a venue some five times larger than the previous home, which was also in the Jinja area. Check out the map of the festival’s new site below. The festival itself will once again focus attention on electronic music scenes across Africa, alongside sounds from the global diaspora and others. In total, 300 names will play across seven stages, including MC Yallah, Otim Alpha, Kampire, Phatstoki, MC Aunty Rayzor and DJ Travella. Kuduro pioneer, DJ Znobia, will play his first date outside Angola in 15 years, while Durban gqom group, Phelimuncasi, who dropped a new album on Nyege Nyege Tapes earlier this year, will also play.
