This year’s beloved MTN Bushfire festival, which is now in its 14th edition and takes place each year in the kingdom of Eswatini, had to be postponed owing to the Covid-19 coronavirus.

Not to be outdone by the pandemic though, organisers are putting a virtual spin on the festival this Saturday, with all donated proceeds going to charity.

The #KeepTheFireBurning live experience, in partnership with event technology platform Howler, promises to bring an immersive two-way virtual experience that recreates the unique atmosphere of the festival.
