Red Bull Music Festival Presents Nyege Nyege Night w DJ Kampire
Kampire - DJ
MCZO & Duke
Ranked one of Mixmag’s ten breakthrough DJs of 2018, Kampire is also one of the biggest names in the underground electronic music scene in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Along with record label and collective Nyege Nyege Tapes, she has laid the bedrock for creating safe party spaces for women and the LGBTQ+ community. Virtually nonexistent in the Kampala club scene until Kampire and Nyege Nyege Tapes, these events spotlight the most forward-thinking pan-African sounds tailored for the dancefloor, including but not limited to gqom and afrobeat. Kampire’s propulsive, bass-heavy sets are always one of the highlights at Nyege Nyege shows.
In recent years, Kampire has played everywhere from Diplo’s Africa showcase at Sónar to Shanghai and Tokyo. This year, Red Bull Music Festival New York will bring her to Brooklyn’s Black Flamingo for her U.S. debut. For this landmark event, Kampire will headline a club night featuring rising singeli duo MCZO & Duke and Discwoman affiliate BEARCAT to celebrate an array of Pan-African club music.
Tickets will be sold at the door.
