Every first week of August, Lunkulu Island off the shores of Lake Victoria comes alive as a vibrant and eventful island when an unparalleled 24/4 hour feast of Music, Dance, Poetry, Storytelling, Acrobatics, Theatre, Film, and Visual Arts from renowned and upcoming Artists is brought to Mukono District.

Since its first edition in 2008, a wide variety of known and upcoming Artists from Uganda, East Africa and beyond have performed at the different stages of the Bayimba International Festival of the Arts. The 12th edition of this acclaimed festival is scheduled to take place from August 1-4, 2019 at Lunkulu Island, Mukono, Uganda, bringing to life a true experience of the Arts in all its forms.
