This years’ edition of the 3 day Milege World Music Festival has a star-studded line-up of performers set to showcase at the Botanical Gardens in Entebbe as the FOMO builds up to next weekend’s event.
The event that draws acts all over the world is set to feature the likes of Afrigo Band, Quela, Apio Moro and sax king Michael Kitanda who will be some of the headlining acts. The long line up also has other star performers jetting in from Israel, Canada, China and Tanzania.
The Milege World Music Festival happens every November and this year the event will happen for three days from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th November. So many activities including and not limited to zoo visits to Uganda Wildlife Education Center (UWEC), visiting the Chimpanzees on Ngamba island, several acoustic performances, jam sessions, football, children’s games, biking and so on are lined up for revellers. Revellers that love camping will be provided with tents and mattresses at the campsite located somewhere in the botanical forest.
The hosts Milege will set the pace as they will be performing on the first day of the event to open up the stage for the guest performers and is expected to be massive as usual.
It should be remembered that last year went down as a memorable edition which saw the likes of Madoxx Sematimba, Racheal Magoola and many other performers grooving on the big stage making revellers dance to the ground.
Nile Special, Uganda Wild Life Education Center, NARO, Chimpazee Trust (Chimpazee Sanctuary & Wildlife Conservation Trust) and Jazz 106.1 FM among many others are the major sponsors of the event that will see some revellers camp at the site for the 3 days.
The Milege World Music Festival started in 2010 in Jinja and moved to the Entebbe Botanical Gardens in Entebbe in 2014. The major aim of this festival is to celebrate culture through the arts (music, art, poetry, games etc), and to promote tourism.
The Milege World Music Festival is one of the projects under Milege organization. Other projects include; the School’s Project which gives art, social and academic skills to teachers and children, Milege Acoustic Project which aims at promoting talent and Repainting Uganda a social and community development project that aims at skilling people and communities in the arts to better themselves.
