Last weekend Nyege Nyege International Music Festival second edition was on fire in Jinja and is now building a notorious reputation as a fun-filled 3-day picnic-like party right at the source of the river Nile in Jinja, Uganda where nature fuses with music and art. The festival site at the Nile Discovery Beach in Jinja where the action took place, is surrounded by over four acres of lush green tropical forests and open spaces interlaced with surrealist concrete sculptures, hidden pathways and follies and its own beach on the river where revellers are free to swim (at their own risk of course).

With over 200 artistes and DJs lined up from all over the world, the event has now turned into a major item and crowd puller for revellers and art enthusiasts all over East Africa and other parts of the world. They come in their droves and set up tents at a comfy camping site just within the lush beach which is also surrounded by a natural forest and beautiful vegetation that is complimented by works of art and other decorations to create a more enchanting atmosphere. Below are some of the best moments captured by our camera;
