Looks like all those deeply meaningful prayers and the continual morality thumping has worked, Nyege Nyege 2022, suspended in beauracratic limbo for 18 hours, is officially back on and set to kick off this week on September 15th.
The festival has become the stuff of East African party legend by this point, and has been decommissioned for the last three years due to the COVID pandemic, now; at a new site on the East side of the Nile, just by the crash of Itanda Falls, the vibe comes back officially and with force.
Seems in Kampala, you simply can’t find people who aren’t making that trek down to Jinja, and the same vibe is emanating from other spots in East Africa.
If you haven’t bought your tickets already, do so. Get lit or go home.
Just don’t come naked.
