Nigerian Afro-pop star Mr Eazi has been added to the lineup for the 2019 MTN Bushfire. The Afro-centric festival will be held at the House on Fire in the Malkerns Valley from 24 to 26 May 2019.
Mr Eazi is taking African music to the global stage, his mix of sounds, a penchant for global collaborations and, this year, his versatility as an artist has won over fans across the world. He embodies global relevance and pioneering creativity while remaining authentic to his African identity.
Cutting edge artists
Some of the latest additions to the 2019 lineup include a range of cutting edge artists who are pushing the limits of performance. Ain the Machineis an audiovisual storyteller with a clear goal: to transform the way we interact with music. It is music without instruments. A concept he calls, Musica Biotronica. Musica Biotronica takes sounds from the body, voice and everyday objects and, with the help of technology, transforms them into music.
Switzerland’s Puts Marie as an indie band has been described as a mix between a great rock n roll circus and theatre with strange poetry, while Colombia’s Alibombo, besides being a percussion group, is an experimentation laboratory with noise that creates music from recycled elements.
The lineup also includesLizzy – a German artist who merges hypnotic drumming with wearable 3D printing. Lizzy pushes the boundaries of musical performance to become the character of your wildest electro-pop dreams, along withAramboa, Austria’s downbeat, triphop, IDM, neo-soul, bass music, dubstep and jazz electronic soul combo.
Some of South Africa’s most innovative acts will also be in e’Swatini as DJ Invizible, the self-described master of staging creative guerrilla performances, as well as Dope Saint Jude, a rapper and producer with a defiant, life-affirming queer perspective, have also been announced.
