Bayimba organises a range of events and programmes to uplift the arts and culture in Uganda and East Africa. During the past five years, these events and programmes have significantly contributed to a growing and increasingly professional creative community and industry.

The three-day Bayimba International Festival is the highlight of our annual season. It has developed into Uganda’s number one festival, programming the finest expressions of the arts both locally and internationally, while attracting over 50,000 people from different strata. In 2012, we proudly celebrated the 5th edition of this multi-disciplinary festival with an exhilarating programme and an overwhelming audience.

Every season we also travel along a number of upcountry towns to celebrate local arts and artists. With our events and programmes we move from Jinja, Gulu, Arua, Mbarara, Moroto, Mbale, where (in most towns) our Bayimba Regional Festivals take place. These one-day festivals equally excite and surprise our audiences and their popularity and reach continue to grow year after year. Last year, we managed to attract an average of 3,000 people per region.

New to our seasons are our regular concerts series in Kampala, presenting upcoming and established artists from the East African region and beyond to audiences that savour artistic quality and excellence. To promote such artistic quality and excellence, Bayimba also launched DOADOA, an annual East African market platform bringing together performing arts industry stakeholders to network and promote their work beyond the region with, amongst others, a whole week of showcases by the best of the best from East Africa.

Undoubtedly, the Bayimba seasons offer multiple opportunities to reach out to large numbers of potential customers and sponsorship activation throughout the year. Our seasons present excellent opportunities for corporate sponsorship, including season sponsorship and sponsorship of our festivals and other events (such as our Bayimba concert series and DOADOA). Sponsorship opportunities are available at a variety of levels and with various benefits. Our team will gladly work with you to craft a customized, targeted sponsorship package with your business and marketing objectives in mind.

As a sponsor of our events and programmes, you will not only enjoy a range of sponsorship benefits, but also have a chance to associate your brand with and indelibly link it in the minds of our audiences to the Bayimba experience.

We are proud of having developed Bayimba into a recognised and respected brand in the world of arts and culture, both locally and internationally. We offer your business an unprecedented chance to join our growing community of partners, supporters and customers, and present your brand as an indispensable patron to artistic and cultural diversity in Uganda and East Africa.

We strive for continuous improvement of our events and programmes and we have never been more hopeful that the coming seasons will be more exciting, inclusive and enriching.

We invite you to make a move and tag your brand to the Bayimba experience and join us in OUR JOURNEY!
