Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival

After 11 years of successful and seamless MTN Bushfire festivals, the organisers are excited to announce a new addition to the events calendar: The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival, taking place on August 4th 2018.

This unique regionally focused event will bring the Bushfire ethos of diversity, inclusion and socially responsible celebrations to a one-day lavish feast of music, fashion, entertainment, culinary exploits, and connoisseur led premium wine and whiskey showcases.

This annual event will take place on House on Fire’s lavish lawns, ringed by unique locally infused architecture and the inviting farm-style warmth of Malandela’s Restaurant. The spacious and beautiful venue will enable festival goers to leisurely interact with a range of lifestyle activations designed for the whole family.

Showcasing the amazing and diverse tastes of Southern Africa, the festival will host a range of top chefs, wineries, breweries, restaurants and eateries as well as artisans, and of course, an amazing line-up of music.

Set amidst the world acclaimed House on Fire soapstone sculpture garden with a breathtaking backdrop of endless cane fields and rolling hills, the Standard Bank main stage will feature an inspired array of sounds from high profile acts from the region and beyond.

Within the House on Fire Amphitheatre, a culinary-focused program will create space for interaction with featured presenters, celebrity chefs and culinary demonstrations, as well as stand-up comedy and a selection of artists & DJs from the region.

Across the festival lawns guests will also be able to leisurely stroll through various experiences with food, arts, as well as high-end, bespoke and handmade home décor, objet d’art, fashion and visual art pieces.

A variety of lounges and activation spaces will make for a memorable experience.
