Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning 'humanity to others'. Ubuntu teaches that we must live in harmony with nature, and that we must protect the environment for future generations. In spirit of ‘Celebrating the Culture’, we hold ‘Ubuntu’ as core to Manya Festival and have made an active dedication towards pushing Sustainability.


Manya Festival is going to be car-free this year. Meaning no customer parking will be available and festival go-ers can instead make use of our on-site shuttle buses to enter the event terrain. The decision to make this year’s edition car-free is saving approximately 46,000 metric kg of carbon dioxide emissions!


We have more points and recycling stations for waste separation. We are proud of our audience, which is increasingly conscious of sustainability, participating in waste separation. This small gesture makes recycling easier and helps us keep our festivals cleaner.
