Roast And Rhyme Fest Returns With Unique Post-Lockdown Edition

By Ivan Mwine

Lovers of cold beer, live music and sizzling grilled meat have all reasons to rejoice following the lifting of the curfew, because we can ably announce the return of the much-anticipated Roast and Rhyme festival.

This is going to be the first Roast & Rhyme edition to be held at its home at the Jahazi Pier in Munyonyo since March 2020 when the lockdown was announced, which is  almost two years ago.

This edition, dubbed the ‘Reggae Ragga Nyam Nyam’, will take place on the 27th of February at Jahazi Pier, Munyonyo.

 The organisers, Swangz Avenue and Bell Lager, say this edition will welcome the public back ‘outside’ with the signature picnic-themed afternoon on the shores of Lake Victoria, featuring bigger and better amenities, comfortable seating, plus certified chefs who will serve savoury barbecues and exciting ‘Bell na Nyama’ combos at affordable prices.

 According to Matilda Babuleka, the Bell Brand Manager, this edition will deliver Mpola Enjoyments, which are about having a good time in a chilled, laid-back environment surrounded by friends and loved ones.

She revealed that the revellers will also enjoy games like Matatu and Ludo, while being soothed by reggae and ragga music performed live by Ugandan artistes.

The organisers have also hinted at a possible barbecue showdown between attendees who trust their grilling skills, which will be judged by a yet-to-be-revealed celebrity chef, and the winners will take home exclusive Mpola Enjoyments hampers.

 Gates will be open as early as 11:00Am and tickets are available for 70k (5-11th February) early bird, 80k (12th-18th February) early bird max and 100k (19th-27th February ) standard.

Tickets are available at Drew & Jacs at Forest Mall, Positive Emotions Garden City, Soothing Spa Acacia Mall, Nail Villa Senana Building, Funz Videoz (Kabalagala, Kisementi, Kyanja) and Swangz Avenue at The Square Building, 2nd-floor 3rd street Industrial area.
